What’s Your Watershed Address?
Several watershed groups are very active in the Panhandle. They are always looking for new members and even offer incentives for property owners located with the watershed boundary. To find out what programs you may be eligible for simply use the “What’s Your Watershed Address (Region 9 Watershed Map)” and type your home address in the space provided. When the map zooms to your address click the colored portion to bring up information on the watershed where you’re located.
