Land and Water Resource Management Planning
Adams County 2016-2025
At the root of the county Land and Water Resource Management (LWRM) plan concept is the cooperation and coordination of all agencies and groups within the county that have a role in land and water resource management. This plan coordinates everyone's efforts, and focuses on how the County's Land and Water Conservation Department will work with the other agencies.
The Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection (DATCP) requires that each county Land and Water Conservation Department (LWCD) have a 5-year or 10-year Land and Water Resource Management (LWRM) plan (Ch. 92.10, WI Statutes) to coordinate LWCD activities. The County Land and Water Conservation Committee (LWCC) contracted with North Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (NCWRPC) to assist the LWCD with facilitating the LWRM planning process.
Land and Water Resource Management (LWRM) Plans provide counties an opportunity to explain how they will meet the state performance standards and prohibitions (NR 151 and ATCP 50) to reduce runoff and protect water quality, as well as address other local land and water resource management concerns. The LWRM Plan provides the counties with the ability to develop local strategies to address the concerns; budget the limited staff and cost share dollars toward these concerns; provide for integration of programs and funding from all sources; and develop a variety of implementation tools.
