The Tug Hill Commission, in conjunction with the 37 towns in the Black River Watershed and the Lewis County Soil and Water Conservation District, prepared a comprehensive document detailing water quality characteristics, natural resource, land use, critical built infrastructure and water quality stresses in the watershed.  The completed plan gave communities decision-making information, built capacity in local government on water quality issues, and identified opportunities for local action to help improve and manage water quality.
