Development of a Watershed Action Plan for the Lockwood Folly River, Brunswick County, North Carolina
The focus of this Masters Project was to continue the watershed planning process by organizing, synthesizing, and expanding this work into a single Watershed Action Plan for the Lockwood Folly River. The purpose of the Plan is to: 1) summarize current conditions and issues, 2) state environmental/water quality goals, 3) develop a set of action strategies to reach these goals, and 4) offer ideas on implementation and evaluation. The six action strategies represent areas where management could be improved to better protect water quality. They include sustainable development, land conservation, stream and wetland management, regulatory program coordination, working waterfronts, and public education and participation. The Plan will be presented to Brunswick County staff and commissioners for potential adoption and use in decision-making, and will be made available to the public.
