Project Description

The State of Alabama will oversee the distribution of RESTORE funds to the Mobile Bay National Estuary Program (MBNEP) to complete comprehensive Watershed Management Plans (WMPs) for watersheds identified as priorities in coastal Alabama by the MBNEPis Science Advisory Committee and Project Implementation Committee. The planning process is designed to build community partnerships; characterize current conditions in each watershed; identify goals and solutions for reducing pollutants entering the bay, sound, and Gulf waters; and establish implementation programs that include a schedule, interim milestones, criteria to measure progress, a monitoring component, information/education programs, and identification of technical and financial assistance needed to implement the plans.
