A watershed is defined as a land area where all water that flows across or through it is channeled to the same point, such as a stream, river, lake, or ocean. All lands are part of a watershed, from the smallest of backyards to the largest continent. The quality and quantity of water that flows into a water body impacts whether a habitat can support the chemical, physical, and biological communities within it. Watershed-based planning is a way to protect and restore water quality at local, manageable scales. The La Nana Bayou Watershed Protection Plan (WPP) is a comprehensive, stakeholder-driven approach to improving the water quality in the La Nana Bayou watershed of Nacogdoches, Texas.
