Stream Management Plan Resource Library
Are you interested in learning about Stream Management Plans (SMP) in Colorado? This Resource Library contains everything you need to understand what they are, where they are, how they can be used, and how to do them well.
The Resource Library is meant to help enlarge the pipeline of local coalitions that are interested, ready, and capable of undertaking Stream Management Plans, as well as advance the state of knowledge around how to craft effective and implementable SMPs. It will help coalitions think about why and how to undertake SMPs, develop thorough and rigorous scopes of work, and learn from current examples.
This site is a joint project of the Colorado Water Conservation Board and River Network for any individual or entity interested in developing or implementing a Stream Management Plan.
