Auke Lake Watershed Action Plan - Juneau, Alaska
The Auke Lake Watershed Assessment, completed by the Juneau Watershed Partnership (JWP) in 2009, offers an inventory and assessment of general characteristics such as the geology, hydrology, and human and natural history of the watershed. This action plan is a continuation of that work and makes specific recommendations for the continued sustainable management and use of the watershed’s natural resources.
The goal of this plan is to protect and preserve the resources of the Auke Lake watershed by identifying actions leading towards long-term, sustainable management of the watershed. To this end, objectives of this plan are to: • Identify key natural resources in the Auke Lake watershed. • Outline potential threats to these resources. • Develop workable actions toward mitigation or prevention of these threats. • Identify opportunities for partnership among governing agencies at the municipal, state, and federal level, and among community, private, and nonprofit stakeholders.
The intention is that this report will be utilized collaboratively by local, state, and federal agencies involved in conservation and land management decisions within the watershed, the City and Borough of Juneau (CBJ), and Juneau residents.
