Improve and maintain the quality and conditions of the Upper Pit River and its tributaries through active application of technology, education and community participation, for the benefit of the Pit River Watershed and the communities that depend on the health of the river.
The purpose of the Pit River Watershed Management Strategy (WMS) is to summarize and prioritize the resource issues facing the Pit River Watershed. Further, the WMS is designed to foster an organized, voluntary forum to address goals and implement actions needed to improve and maintain the Pit River Watershed.
