What is a watershed protection plan?

A watershed protection plan is a coordinated effort among stakeholders of a watershed to determine and implement a plan to ease an environmental issue. The stakeholders often include residents of the impacted community, representatives of governmental and other agencies and local businesses, among others.

The stakeholders work with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to develop a plan and formulate programs to manage the issue.
