  3. ISTS/Ground Water Protection - protect ground water from contamination to ensure drinking water aquifers retains good quality.
  4. Forest and Pasture Land - improve forest and pasture land management to reduce soil erosion and increase water quality.
  5.  Watershed Management Approach - focus on the watershed's condition as the starting point for water quality assessment, planning and measurement of results.
