STC worked with regional partners to develop a "Susquehanna-Chemung Action Plan" for conserving and protecting water resources in the Susquehanna and Chemung River Basins of New York.  An "ecosystem-based management" approach was used to develop a unified vision for the region and promote funding for projects that benefit the Basin's residents.

Meads Creek and its tributaries (in Steuben and Schuyler Counties) are plagued by severe flooding problems and excessive streambank erosion.  There are also water quality concerns.  In order to promote improved management of the watershed, STC assisted the Meads Creek Watershed Citizens' Committee with development of the Meads Creek Watershed Strategic Action Plan (large file).  This plan compiles existing information about watershed characteristics, documents ongoing efforts to implement improved practices, and recommends future activities.

The Seeley Creek Watershed Strategic Plan was developed in 2002 to identify opportunities for protecting citizens from hazards, improving hydrologic conditions, and protecting existing water quality in the Seeley Creek Watershed of New York and Pennsylvania.
