Abstract:
This watershed plan represents the culmination of the initial watershed planning process in Culebra - the goal of the watershed plan is to help chart a course for the improvement of water quality and coral reefs and to serve the goals of the citizens of Culebra. The process to complete the Plan has included: 1) a baseline study that summarizes existing scientific information and background on the study area (integrated into this report); 2) a stakeholder process that has included meetings with individuals, agencies and a series of meetings with the public to establish goals and objectives for the watershed plan; 3) fieldwork to establish water quality and coral reef conditions as well as the sources of pollution coming from the land; 4) identification and prioritization of restoration opportunities including policy changes, implementation projects and enforcement issues; and 5) completion of a draft and final watershed plan"--Purpose.
