Tactical Basin Plans provide an assessment of the health of the basin and identifies water quality strategies related to agriculture, developed lands, wastewater, and natural resources. The plan also includes information about how landowners, watershed organizations, and communities can access funding and technical assistance to help protect and restore water resources. These plans integrate watershed modeling, water quality monitoring, sector-specific pollution source assessments, and stakeholder input to document geographically-explicit actions necessary to protect, maintain, enhance, and restore surface waters.
