Watershed Management Plan

The Black Dog Watershed Management Organization (BDWMO) Watershed Management Plan (WMP) sets the vision and guidelines for managing surface waters within the boundaries of the BDWMO. The WMP provides data and other background information, outlines the applicable regulations, assesses watershed-wide and resource-specific issues, sets goals and policies for the BDWMO and its members, and lists implementation tasks to achieve the goals.

The BDWMO commissioners, member cities, and partners collaborated to update the BDWMO Watershed Management Plan through a two-year process beginning in 2020. On October 26, 2022, the Board of Water and Soil Resources approved the updated BDWMO Watershed Management Plan. The BDWMO commissioners adopted the Plan on November 16, 2022.
