Water Management Plan is being amended with your input

The District is in the process of amending its Third Watershed Management Plan (hereinafter "Plan") approved in 2011 and amended in 2015 (see right-hand column). The current amendment process is in response to requests from the District's Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) to align the Plan with water governance documents in the municipalities within the District and adjacent watershed management organizations. This amendment focuses on the standards in Section 3 and implementation Program in Section 4; it also revises sections with outdated laws and completed projects.

The Draft Plan Amendment, provided below in Sections, was the object of many of your comments (see documents below under "Comments and responses ... now available"). Thanks so much for participating in the process.
