Watershed Watch County Summary Reports

A County Report serves as an informational and recruitment tool for Watershed Watch members to use in their communities.  It provides a summary of basic information about Watershed Watch sampling in the county and suggestions for action items to improve water quality.

The following are links to recently completed County Summary Reports, intended to be used as educational and sampler recruiting tools.  If you have an interest in developing a county report with the assistance of the KRWW Board, please contact us for help!
