Project Goals/Objectives: This project will result in the production of a stakeholder driven WPP developed and guided by input from local stakeholders and governmental entities. Stakeholder interest to develop a WPP to aid in protecting and preserving the creeks and their water quality has gained interest in recent years. Previous work in the watershed has also included water quality monitoring, a watershed characterization report, and stakeholder education thus providing groundwork for WPP development.
Following WPP development, TWRI will work with stakeholders to identify potential implementation efforts and leverage previously implemented efforts that have already occurred in surrounding watersheds. Watershed characterization planning and implementation activities in Carters and Burton Creeks; Thompsons Creek; and Deer and Davidson Creeks watersheds will be leveraged to create more comprehensive future implementation projects for Middle Yegua Creek. Integration with implementation work in neighboring watersheds will ensure the successful and long-term continuation of addressing water quality concerns in the watershed and greater area.
