Watershed Management Plans in the Hudson Valley

A watershed plan compiles information for a particular watershed delineation, defines targets, and sets priorities for next steps to achieve specific goals. Watershed planning is a collaborative process that requires buy-in and expertise from a variety of stakeholders. See below for links to specific watershed plans within the Hudson River watershed. More details on watershed planning frameworks are available here.
