Caledonia County features five main watersheds: Passumpsic, Upper Lamoille, Stevens, Wells and Connecticut River Direct. A watershed is a drainage area for a stream system. The Conservation District plays a role in each watershed by working closely with the VT Department of Environmental Conservation’s (DEC) Tactical Basin Planning Program. Basin Plans are a water quality guidance document for each main watershed in Vermont. With these plans, the Conservation Districts coordinate resources, collect data, and develop and implement various watershed projects and programs to meet water quality and natural resource goals. These projects may address stormwater problems, inadequate bridges and culverts, erosion issues, flooding, and a number of other related concerns.
