Announcing the 2027-2036 Watershed Management Plan

Residents, businesses, and recreators of the VLAWMO watershed are invited to contribute to the launch of our our 2027-2036 Watershed Management Plan. What issues in the watershed concern you? What lakes, parks, or trails are you most passionate about? 

A public survey is open Feb 5 to March 13th to gather these insights and more. 

This survey will help guide VLAWMO’s projects, programs, and use of public funding from 2027-2036. The planning process is an important way to strengthen existing connections and build new ones with our partners and community. Participate through the survey or learn more by attending an upcoming virtual or in-person event found at the Plan Web Hub below.
