Bassett Creek Watershed Management Commission

What is a watershed?

Purpose

Watershed management organization districts are special purpose local units of government whose boundaries follow those of a natural watershed (an area in which all water drains to one point). The watershed districts are named after the primary lake or river within the watershed. Watershed management allows for consideration of all the factors that contribute to the condition of a given stream or lake, and provides the opportunity for all people within the watershed to work together.
