Black River Watershed Management Plan Northern Ny

A comprehensive analysis and plan for the area in and around Lewis County to restore and manage the Black River Watershed.

Bergmann was selected to complete the Black River Watershed Management Plan for Lewis County in upstate New York. This multi-county effort focused on ranking and prioritizing sub-watershed conditions and then identifying strategies for watershed restoration and management. The plan included public education and involvement opportunities ranging from traditional informational meetings and workshops to in-field environmental education classes.
