Nisqually Watershed Management Plan (Number of pages: 178) (Publication Size: 1044KB)
|Golder Associates Inc.
|This plan is the product of four years of collaboration, through which the Planning Unit has reached a common ground in creating management strategies and recommending actions. The Watershed
Management Plan is intended to serve as a locally-supported, long-term plan focusing on water availability, and also addressing water quality, habitat, and instream flows in the Nisqually Watershed
(WRIA 11). It has been created with the understanding that without the commitment and involvement of stakeholders in a collaborative and comprehensive planning effort, current and future
water needs in the Nisqually Watershed could not be met.
Watershed planning within Watershed Resource Inventory Areas (WRIAs) recognizes the large scale and complexity of water resources and the wide variety of factors that influence the amount of water
available for use. Although the geographic area contained in a WRIA rarely corresponds with political or other jurisdictional boundaries, water resource issues such as water supply, water quality,and habitat for fish and wildlife are closely linked within watersheds. The Nisqually Watershed, its sub-basins, and the cities, towns, counties, tribal and federal lands within it are shown in Figure 1.
