Overview of Watershed 263 Project - Techniques for Monitoring and Assessing Social and Ecological Dynamics
 
Guy Hager
 
Watershed 263 is a new, innovative public-private partnership project to prepare and implement a model urban storm sewer Watershed Management Plan as an official Baltimore City guide for restoration, water qulaity improvement, and quality of life enhancement. Through collaboration among several governmental and community organizations, we will collect, evaluate, and conduct research on social and ecolgoical dynamics of the twelve neighborhoods composing the watershed. We will plan and implement watershed restoration projects and measure the changes over time and determine how social change and ecological restoration can contribute to urban revitalization.
