Water Quality —Together for Beaufort

We will be Good Stewards of our Natural Resources by Protecting and Monitoring Water Quality &  Stormwater

             In support of the Together for Beaufort’s goal to improve Water Quality the Beaufort Conservation District organized  committee made up of federal, state, county,  municipalities, and conservation organizations working in Beaufort County.  These professionals meet at least quarterly to share information, discuss problems, and introduce new practices and success from their jobs. 


             In 2007 the committee began analyzing the 1997 Blueprint for Clean Water Task Force ReportAfter reviewing the original 50 + parameters, the committee came up with The Next 10 Steps for the Blueprint for Clean Water which outlines the steps that need to be accomplished to continue improving our surrounding waters. The group has also developed  list of 9 Action Items that has been used to implement The Next 10 Steps.
