According to the Alliance for Economic Success, the watershed is reporting very well, but there are areas of concern regarding the removal of native vegetation and its effects on erosion within the watershed. Now, the LMWCC needs feedback about the public’s uses of and goals for protecting the watershed as they finalize their plan.
