What is a Watershed Group?

According to the EPA, 80 percent of U.S. streams are not monitored. Environmental professionals paid to monitor and improve water cannot be everywhere or fix everything. Watershed groups fill this gap by monitoring what's happening in their watersheds. They bring attention to critical issues, educate the public and complete stream improvement projects. Each watershed group is different, but some common activities include the following:

Stream Improvement Projects

Stream Cleanups

Tree Plantings

Water Quality Monitoring

Public Education

Habitat Restoration
