Rapid Watershed Assessments

A rapid watershed assessment (RWA) evaluates resource conditions and needs on an 8-digit hydrologic unit (HU) basis. The assessment identifies the primary resource concerns for the watershed being profiled and provides estimate as to where conservation investments would best address the concerns of landowners, conservation districts, stakeholders, and others. The RWA provides information on which to base decisions about conservation priorities, allocation of resources, and funding for implementation.
