Snake River 1W1P


About Snake River One Watershed One Plan

Partners across the watershed are coming together to develop a comprehensive watershed management plan for the Snake River Watershed. A watershed is an area of land that drains all the streams and rainfall to a common outlet. The vision for One Watershed, One Plan (1W1P) is to create a local water plan on a major watershed boundary instead of traditional County boundaries. Together we are going to create a comprehensive plan to include prevention, restoration, protection and preservation of our watershed.
