Watershed Planning and Management
Watershed planning and management can be broadly defined as setting goals for our watersheds and developing strategies, outlining tasks and overseeing schedules to ensure goals are accomplished.
Goals are made to support two closely related and overlapping objectives: to support stormwater quality and to manage stormwater quality in a manner which is sustainable for future generations.
Stormwater quality and quantity are direct functions of the activities and characteristics within a common drainage area or basin—we call these watersheds.
The City of Stillwater is fully located within the Stillwater Creek watershed and several smaller watersheds can be delineated based on the smaller tributaries that connect to Stillwater Creek (i.e., Duck Creek, Cow Creek, and Boomer Creek).
