Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at ICPRB!
As the old proverb goes, “It takes a village to raise a child”. Adapting that saying to the Potomac River basin, we could say that it takes an entire watershed to protect and enhance our Nation’s River!
As recommended by our Potomac River Basin Comprehensive Water Resource Plan, we recently developed a list of entities with a role in water resources management in the Potomac River basin. We identified an impressive total of 733 entities in the Potomac watershed that are working toward our common goal. Our village includes volunteers, non-profit organizations, private entities, as well as local, state, and federal employees.
During this Thanksgiving Holiday, we at ICPRB want to thank all the stakeholders in the watershed who have put their strong stewardship ethic into practice to help preserve the many values of the Potomac River. Every entity has a significant role to play in conserving this precious resource for the benefit of this and future generations. Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do to make a positive difference in the Potomac River basin!
