Rapid Watershed Assessment


The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is encouraging the development of rapid watershed assessments in order to increase the speed and efficiency generating information to guide conservation implementation, as well as the speed and efficiency of putting it into the hands of local decision makers.

Background Information

Rapid watershed assessments (RWAs) provides initial estimates of where conservation investments would best address the concerns of landowners, conservation districts, and other community organizations and stakeholders. These assessments help land-owners and local leaders set priorities and determine the best actions to achieve their goals.  The RWAs incorporate existing information on 8-digit Hydrologic Unit Sub-basins to produce a profile of the watershed and an assessment of conservation status and needs.
