3.1.10

The Colusa County RCD was granted funding through the Department of Conservation's Watershed Coordinator Grant Program to complete a Management Plan for the Colusa Basin Watershed. The goal of the Management Plan is to improve the holistic health of the Colusa Basin Watershed by increasing Watershed knowledge, reducing invasive species, preserving open space and ag lands and promoting conservation practices that improve water quality.

Work on the Management Plan began in March of 2010. Our first order of business is to form a Technical Advisory Committe (TAC) and Community Advisory Group (CAG), and to host a series of meetings to gain stakeholder input and support for the Management Plan. The first community meeting will be held in April, 2010. Date, time and location will be announced soon.
