2004 Upper Salinas River Watershed Action Plan
The Watershed Plan (WAP) is a comprehensive planning document, a management plan, for the use by landowners, agencies, and groups in their individual and collective efforts to improve and restore natural resources within the 2,000 square mile area of the Upper Salinas River Watershed. The planning area comprises approximately one-quarter of the watersheds that affect the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The primary objectives of the WAP are to improve water quality and to ensure adequate water resources to meet the various needs within the watershed, to foster the future well-being of agriculture, to reduce the loss of soil, to enhance habitat conditions and to improve land use policies.
