To improve the stewardship of Scott County watersheds through education, technical guidance, and volunteer opportunities.
In 1990, 1993 & 1995 severe flooding occurred on Scott County urban streams. This flooding was a result of the conventional methods being used to deal with stormwater. These events and concerns with water quality in Scott County streams led to the formation of the Partners of Scott County Watersheds, an alliance committed to developing and implementing ways all citizens can be better stewards of our watersheds.
Since 2003, the group has been improving water quality and working toward flood reduction in Scott County by providing residents, landowners, developers, environmental organizations, educators, and government officials with education, technical support, and financial assistance to promote and install best management practices.
This year, we’re celebrating our 20th anniversary! We are excited and honored to enter our second decade of improving the health and quality of our local natural resources.
