Buck Creek Watershed Protection Plan

Lucas Gregory

Using information developed in these 3 projects and, most importantly, input from watershed stakeholders, this document is the culmination of efforts to identify the sources of bacteria pollution in the watershed and develop a plan to mitigate loadings from those sources by voluntarily implementing practices described in the plan. By comprehensively considering the multitude of potential pollutant sources in the watershed, this plan describes recommended management strategies that, when implemented, will reduce pollutant loading in the most cost-effective manner available at the time of planning. Despite the extensive amounts of information that went into the development of this WPP, a better understanding of the watershed and effectiveness of protective or mitigating actions will undoubtedly develop. As such, this WPP is a living document that will evolve as needed through the adaptive management process.
