Water Resources Foundation Reports

The Water Resources Foundation Report is designed to address the needs of the Foundation for Planning and Management document (see Water Resources Planning Fact Sheet), extending as a reference on water resources for the GMP. The primary objectives of the Water Resources Foundation Report are to: 1) synthesize information on the existing conditions of a park’s water resources; 2) identify and describe the park’s fundamental and/or important water resources, building from a park’s purpose and significance statements, and 3) identify stakeholders and laws and policies that apply to these fundamental water resources.
