The primary goal of this project is to develop a comprehensive Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategies (WRAPS) Report to be used on the local level. Achieving this goal will require sound working relationships between local government units (LGUs), watershed citizens, and state government. Gathering input from these groups will be critical in drafting a WRAPS report that can be utilized by local decision-makers. Working groups will be convened to become informed of the watershed management process and to assist watershed professionals in engaging the public and producing the WRAPS report.
