What is WRAPS?

Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) is a planning and management framework that engages stakeholders within a particular watershed in a process to:

  • Identify watershed restoration and protection needs and opportunities
  • Establish management goals for the watershed community
  • Create a cost-effective action plan to achieve goals
  • Implement the action plan

WRAPS represents a shift from "top-down" government intervention in watershed issues, to a more citizen-stakeholder approach, in which funds, guidance and technical assistance are provided for stakeholders to reach consensus on issues of relevance in their watershed, and then design and execute a plan to address those issues.
