At the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the emphasis of water quality protection programs is shifting towards an integrated, holistic management approach in order to cohesively address the many diverse environmental threats to a watershed. The approach, the Watershed Protection Approach (WPA), is currently being applied in the Savannah River basin to reap environmental benefits and to test the principles of this approach on a major river system in the Southeast. The Savannah River Basin Watershed Project is designed to reduce environmental and human health risk through improved water quality and resource protection. This presentation illustrates the approach being applied to the Savannah River Basin watershed and the technical tools used to address environmental issues in the study area.
