Watershed-Based Solutions


Since the Clean Water Act was passed 35 years ago, clean water agencies have contributed significantly to improving the nation's water quality, but the incremental rate of improvement has slowed significantly. A watershed based approach to water quality is now needed to holistically consider all causes of water quality impairment and to restore the physical, chemical and biological integrity of our nation's waters.

NACWA's Strategic Watershed Task Force issued its Recommendations for a Viable and Vital 21st Century Clean Water Policy icon-pdf on the 35th anniversary of the Clean Water Act, and the Task Force is now working on one of the report's primary recommendations, the 21st Century Watershed Act icon-pdf.
