Watershed Planning

Watershed Assessments

In early 2017, the Story County Board of Supervisors and the Story County Conservation Board partnered to bring on a consulting firm to develop countywide watershed assessments throughout Story County. Looking at watersheds at the smaller level – technically, the Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC) 10 and 12 watershed levels – we are developing a comprehensive assessment that identifies watershed specific goals and develops implementation strategies addressing education, outreach and water quality improvement goals.

Story County is leading the state as the first county to look at watersheds at the countywide level. We hope this project helps define the health of our watersheds. The final report for the Watershed Assessments can be viewed here (PDF). You can also view the adopted Implementation Matrix here (PDF).
