Watershed Approach to Recovering Urban Streams: Developing and Implementing a Watershed Management Plan: November 15, 2017
Redmond’s Watershed Management Plan was adopted by its City Council and was developed in partnership with the Washington State Department of Ecology. Redmond’s stormwater utility is now in the process of implementing the program. This includes developing transparent tracking systems, detailed engineered implementation plans for select watersheds, effectiveness monitoring development, and regional collaboration on this approach.
The City of Redmond’s Watershed Plan had the goals of 1) providing baseline scientific information for evaluating watershed potential; 2) prioritizing the Citys watersheds to identify where the greatest potential for response to rehabilitation efforts exists, and 3) Identify specific tools to rehabilitate priority watersheds in 50 years.
