U.S. EPA Requests Comments on Healthy Watersheds Document

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Healthy Watersheds Initiative is a proactive, systems approach to protecting unimpaired U.S. waters. In shaping this initiative, the agency is looking for comments on a draft version of Identifying and Protecting Healthy Watersheds: Concepts, Assessments, and Management Approaches. This document provides “an assessment framework for identifying healthy watersheds, examples of management approaches, sources of national data, and key assessment tools.” The Water Environment Federation will submit comments through its Watershed Management Committee. Comments are due by June 3, and the final document is scheduled for release in October.
