A Watershed Management Plan is an essential first step in preserving water quality in a relatively pristine, tidally-influenced watershed and mitigating the impacts of future development pressures. The watershed planning process utilizes a stakeholder led process to characterize existing conditions, identify and prioritize problems, define management objectives, and develop and implement protection or remediation strategies as necessary. 

The Mobile Bay National Estuary Program has awarded the WMP contract to a consultant, The Dewberry Group, who will work with Parker-Martin Consulting Group on the public participation activities. A diverse Steering Committee has been appointed to guide the planning process. This committee, which represents a broad range of interests in the watershed, is a working group that will serve as advocates for Bayou La Batre and helps make recommendations about the process and the substance of the vision.
