PUBLIC EDUCATION AND INVOLVEMENT TOOLS TO ADVANCE SUSTAINABLE WATERSHED PROTECTION
Abstract:The City of Salem is currently developing a natural treatment demonstration project. This paper describes how Salem changed its focus from within its service territory to work closely with farmers, environmentalists, watershed councils, engineers, and scientists to create the opportunity for an innovative, sustainable approach to water quality management. It explains how Salem was able to redirect its efforts to deal with the “grass roots” concerns within the watershed.
