What is a IMWP?
An integrated watershed management plan outlines actions to address priority land and water resource issues on a watershed basis. The plan is a tool to assist residents, stakeholders and all levels of government in making responsible decisions on how to manage water, develop land and allocate resources within the watershed. Each stakeholder in the watershed has a role in ensuring that this watershed plan is successfully adopted and implemented.
