Onion River PWS Plan - Nine Key Element Plan

Purpose

The Onion River Priority Watershed Project plan assesses the nonpoint sources of pollution in the Onion River Watershed and guides the implementation of nonpoint source control measures. These control measures are needed to meet specific water resource objectives for the Onion River and its tributaries. The purpose of this project is to reduce the amount of pollutants originating from nonpoint sources that reach surface water and groundwater within the Onion River Priority Watershed Project area.

Objective

The primary objective of the project is to reduce nonpoint source pollution to the surface water and groundwater, and to enhance and protect the water quality of streams in the Onion River Watershed.

Outcome

As part of accomplishing this purpose, the following must be identified: 1) water quality problems 2) significant nonpoint and point sources 3) water quality objectives 4) priority management area 5) needed BMPs 6) implementing and participating agencies and responsibilities 7) costs.
