The Potomac Watershed Partnership (PWP) is a collaborative effort among federal, state, and local partners to restore the health of the land and waters of the Potomac River Basin, thereby enhancing the quality of life and overall health of the Chesapeake Bay.
The Potomac Watershed Partnership is not the only restoration effort in the Potomac, but it is one of the first large-scale collaborative efforts to focus on the region’s land use and water quality. The individual strengths, alliances, and resources of these federal, state, and private groups are coming together to work on common goals.
PWP partners work with private landowners, community organizations, businesses, and governments to undertake a variety of efforts to improve water quality; enhance forest, wetland, and aquatic habitats; restore threatened and endangered species; reduce erosion; and conserve open space.
The Potomac Watershed Partnership maintains and shares an extensive archive of presentations from past information exchanges and other useful information from around the Potomac Basin.
