Tactical Basin Plans
The Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation develops Tactical Basin Plans. These plans pull together the monitoring and assessment data, and the protection and restoration tools of rivers, lakes, wetlands and stormwater for each of Vermont’s 15 major watersheds. Tactical plans highlight the projects or actions needed to protect or restore specific waters and identify appropriate funding sources to complete the work. Tactical plans guide all watershed work, the issues identified in these plans are the ones that will be prioritized for management attention, including funding.
