Watershed Restoration Acton Strategies

These Watershed Restoration Action Strategies (WRAS) were developed prior to the EPA nine planning elements that define Watershed-Based Planning  as described in the Nonpoint Source Program and Grants Guidelines for States and Territories. These archival plans generally lack the quantitative elements required of Watershed Based Plans, but many of them still provide useful background information for future planning.
