ROOT-PIKE WATERSHED INITIATIVE NETWORK: Pike River Watershed Restoration Planning

Purpose

The Root-Pike Watershed Initiative Network will contract with a qualified Planning Firm who will work with the Stakeholders to develop an updated Pike River Watershed Restoration Plan. The Restoration Plan will include: 1) Identification of goals and objectives: meeting with stakeholders to refine goals and objectives, review drafts of management plan. 2) Natural resource assessment in the watershed: collect existing watershed data, assess current watershed and wetland conditions, examine open space planning, and develop GIS inventory of the watershed resources. 3) Water quality assessment: compile existing data, collect additional data such as locations of severely eroded stream banks and shorelines, use GIS to estimate pollutant load reductions using BMPs. 4) Prioritized action plan with cost estimates: Identify stakeholder roles and responsibilities, programmatic actions, and site-specific actions. Prioritized action plan with dates, an estimate of financial and technical assistance needs and identification of implementation responsibility and cost. 5) Final assessment and Plan Report. Hold six scheduled meetings between the Planning Firm and Stakeholders Group with a Technical Advisory Group to learn about plan progress and provide input. The public will be invited to attend these meetings, and will be able to submit written questions and comments. The deliverables will include agendas for each meeting, minutes from each meeting, and a listing of the people who attended each meeting. Hold Pike River Summit II in September 2013 that will feature the first public presentation of the Plan. Workshop sessions will feature the Watershed Action Teams who will discuss their role in Phase III to implement restoration projects, and presentations by federal, state and local funders on grant opportunities for river restoration projects.
