Region 7 will award a project under this announcement that an applicant will develop a step-by-step manual for defining critical areas and targeting best management practices (BMPs) for watershed practioners to target resources
to achieve water quality environmental results.
Identification of high priority areas within each watershed provides the most cost effective mechanism for attaining water quality goals and should be included early in the assessment and planning stages of all watershed implementation plans.
Consequently, watershed groups know exactly what BMPs are needed and the precise location to install them to efficiently reach their water quality goals.
The RFP is intended for an applicant that has completed a watershed assessment and has defined their critical areas to target best management practices in their watershed.
The goal is the development of a manual to provide education and technology transfer to other watershed groups or watershed practioners.
