We all live in a watershed. A watershed is all the land area that is drained by a river system. A watershed plan recommends how water resources, such as the Detroit River, can be protected and improved as land uses change. Creating a watershed plan is an approach we can use to evaluate our watershed conditions and implement projects to improve the health of our watershed. We hope you will join us in this initial conversation.
