Final discussion paper on riparian, wetland and floodplain management

The Stakeholder Advisory Group for the Kettle River Watershed Management Plan is releasing the last of several discussion papers leading up to the draft Watershed Management Plan this summer.

Stepping Back From the Water: Managing Wetlands, Riparian Areas and Floodplains in the Kettle River Watershed (pdf) outlines issues, strategies and actions related to wetlands, floodplains and riparian ecosystems, which are critical for maintaining watershed health and all of the benefits humans derive from it. The paper complements and builds on the ideas presented in all of the previous discussion papers, focusing particularly on issues along the water’s edge.
