Watershed Assessment & Management
Our approach to watershed assessment involves facilitating stakeholder involvement supported by science and innovative technologies to analyze and display watershed data.
Our multidisciplinary team of specialists works within this framework to identify and quantify specific causes and sources of water quality problems, assess habitat conditions for salmon and other species, and identify potential solutions to address ecosystem degradation.
We work to identify watershed recovery goals and specific actions that communities, tribes, and local, state, and federal agencies can prioritize and implement.
