Tuthill Creek Watershed Management Plan

Project Location: Town of Brookhaven, NY
Client: Town of Brookhaven (funded by NYSDOS)

NPV prepared a Watershed Management Plan for Tuthills Creek, a tributary to Patchogue Bay and the South Shore Estuary Reserve, located in the Town of Brookhaven, NY. The Watershed Management Plan was prepared to serve as a long-term strategy for the protection and restoration of water quality and ensure compatible land use and development in the Tuthills Creek watershed. The management plan characterized the waterbody and watershed, including an inventory of watershed features, demographic and population data; land use and land cover; water quality classifications; key aquatic habitats; and an assessment of pollutant loads. The Plan prioritized subwatersheds by pollutant load, assessed local laws, programs, and practices affecting water quality, identified management practices, approaches and strategies for watershed protection and restoration, identified potential water quality improvement projects and provided an implementation strategy and schedule.
