It is state policy to manage groundwater and surface water resources from the perspective of aquifers, watersheds, and river basins to achieve protection, preservation, enhancement, and restoration of the state's valuable groundwater and surface water resources. Chapter 103D establishes Watershed Districts across the state to implement watershed management plans. This chapter also provides procedures for construction projects proposed in watershed management districts.
