Why Is It Important to Do Watershed Planning?
Lets discuss why Is It Important to Do Watershed Planning?In my views, watershed planning is importnat to carry out as,
- Everything in W/S is connected to everything else. Upstream activities affect the quality and quantity of water downstream.
- Surface and groundwater systems can be easily contaminated and have a limited tolerance for stress. Long term problems can develop that are costly and difficult to deal with in the future so preventative actions are required at the initial stages.
- Water resources can be protected more efficiently if watersheds are managed as whole ecosystems. By using a watershed approach to managing our resources, harmful impacts on the system can be identified quickly so that prevention, remediation or improvements can be carried out in start.
- Managing our water on a watershed basis and taking the necessary action to protect or rehabilitate it can prevent future community water shortages and poor water quality.
would like to know the point of views of other group members.
