Water: Healthy Watersheds

Healthy Watersheds Integrated Assessments Workshop Proceedings

Healthy Watersheds Integrated Assessments Workshop

The EPA Healthy Watersheds Integrated Assessments Workshop was held in Estes Park, Colorado, November 2-4, 2010.  The purpose of the workshop was to bring together national experts and practitioners to advance the state-of-the-science on integrated healthy watersheds assessments and discuss ideas on large-scale (e.g., state) implementation including using assessment results to guide strategic healthy watersheds protection programs.


The workshop explored: 1) the relationships between healthy watersheds components and processes, and how to design assessments to capture those relationships; 2) methods to assess resilience of healthy watersheds; and 3) how integrated assessments can be practically implemented in state, tribal, or regional programs with goals to protect healthy watersheds.  Data gaps and areas in need of future research were also identified.


The workshop proceedings contain summaries of presentations and break-out group discussions on the following topics:

  • Healthy Watersheds Assessments
  • Watershed Resilience
  • Developing Integrated Assessments
  • Implementation of Healthy Watersheds Assessments
  • Applications of Healthy Watersheds Assessments
  • Research Needs and Data Gaps

Also  included in the workshop proceedings are appendices with a list of workshop  participants, workshop agenda, and the outline of a forthcoming workshop  synthesis document.


Accompanying  the workshop proceedings are copies of all the presentations and program  summaries provided by the speakers.
