A protection and restoration plan resulted from public education, research, fieldwork, data analysis and GIS mapping. Each non-point source problem area site was categorized into three (3) tiers based upon the priority for restoration with tier one (1) being the highest priority for restoration and tier three (3) being the least serious.
The Gallows Run Watershed Restoration and Protection Plan contains a weighted list of water quality and water problem areas within the Gallows Run Watershed. Implementing the identified restoration and protection measures will:
add protection to watershed amenities;
restore impacted problem areas based on need;
increase interest in a watershed protection effort,
abate nonpoint source pollution, and
sustain and improve water quality.
Work on securing funds and the partnerships necessary for plan implementation has already started.
