Step 5: Implement Watershed Plan (cont.)

Implement Management Strategies
The management measures selected, schedules and milestones set, financial and technical resources identified, and I/E programs developed provide a road map for implementation. Follow it. Take advantage of the partnerships you formed during plan development to work toward efficiently implementing the plan.

Key implementation activities include the following:

  • Ensuring technical assistance in the design and installation of management measures.
  • Providing training and follow-up support to landowners and other responsible parties in operating and maintaining the management measures.
  • Managing the funding mechanisms and tracking expenditures for each action and for the project as a whole.
  • Conducting the land treatment and water quality monitoring activities and interpreting and reporting the data.
  • Measuring progress against schedules and milestones.
  • Communicating status and results to stakeholders and the public.
  • Coordinating implementation activities among stakeholders, multiple jurisdictions and in the implementation team.
To keep the implementation team energized, consider periodic field trips and site visits to document implementation activities in addition to the necessary regular team meetings.
