Watershed Management Plan

WATERSHED MANAGEMTN PLANThe Canandaigua Lake Watershed Management Plan builds on the knowledge gained and projects completed over the last fourteen years to develop a more comprehensive strategy to protect Canandaigua Lake and its surrounding watershed from existing and emerging threats.

This most recent update of the Watershed Plan makes the protection and restoration of critical areas a major area of focus utilizing a wide array of strategies. Some examples of these critical areas include: wetlands, shorelines, streamside/roadbank buffer areas, floodplains, forested areas and other areas that filter and reduce stormwater runoff. Protecting and restoring these critical areas provides substantial beneficial services to individuals and the overall community within and beyond the watershed boundaries.
