Watershed Development and Management

Scarcity and threats to freshwater resources from human intervention, climate change, and ove rexploitation have made it increasingly imperative to have sound watershed management. All of us lives in some or the other watershed.  An area of land that drains water, sediment and dissolved materials to a common receiving body or outlet is defined as a watershed. Every activity done  on the surface of a watershed impacts the water quality of water in  streams, ponds, lakes and rivers eventually affecting other downstream areas.

Protecting our water resources requires addressing water quality issues from a watershed perspective. 

water quality protection practices, activities and structures that are constructed or practiced on higher reaches to prevent runoff pollution and soil erosion.
