WHAT IS "WATERSHED MANAGEMENT"?
A watershed is the land area where water collects and drains onto a lower level property or drains into a river, ocean or other
body of water. Watershed management is the integration and coordination of activities
that affect the watershed's natural resources and water quality. It brings together services
like flood protection, water conservation, preserving and creating open space for
recreation and habitat, and reducing pollution of water resources.
A new Watershed Management Division was created to implement this County-wide
priority to improve the overall quality of life for residents of Los Angeles County.
Watershed Management Division plans and supports delivery of an advanced system for flood protection, improving water quality and conserving water, while maximizing habitat, open space, and recreational opportunities.
