Our Approach

FluidClarity’s approach emphasizes working closely with governmental and community leaders to create improved watershed integrity and water quality.

Goal Setting

We balance the technical assessments of ecosystem health with the desired objectives of governments and communities by defining performance measures and information to guide a reasonable decision process.

Planning

We work with community and governmental decision makers to define the degree of restoration, protection, or preservation of local watersheds. This linkage identifies options for management controls and specifies clear actions, responsible parties, and schedules.

Economic and Cost-Benefit Analysis

We assist communities and non-profit organizations in gathering information on local resource value, funding sources, and socioeconomic conditions to create realistic options to support watershed management.

Public Outreach and Consultation

We identify key watershed stakeholders and facilitate their participation in watershed planning. We believe that communication and outreach through educational materials and training volunteers to assist in management and monitoring activities is critical to sustaining healthy watersheds.
