Integrated watershed management is the process of organizing and guiding land, water, and other natural resource use on a watershed to provide desired goods and services to people without affecting adversely soil and water resources. Embedded in the concept of integrate watershed management is the recognition of the interrelationships among land use, soil, and water, and the linkages between uplands and downstream areas.
