Promoting Wise Management of Natural Resources in Greene County, New York Since 1961

Schoharie Basin Stream Management Plans

Stream Management Plans provide a comprehensive review of stream characteristics, data, maps, and recommended management strategies. The plans are meant to assist watershed municipalities and residents in planning for a sustainable future for their property, infrastructure, water and biological resources.

 

Schoharie Basin Action Plans

Action plans direct the implementation of stream management plans by distilling large, overarching goals into smaller, more manageable projects. Actions plans for the Schoharie Watershed are developed every 2 years by a collaboration between the Schoharie Watershed Advisory Committee (SWAC), Greene County Soil & Water Conservation District (GCSWCD), and New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP).
