Watershed Restoration and Improvement Team
The Watershed Restoration and Improvement Team (WRIT) is a working group composed of experts from the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission. Its mission is to "strengthen partnerships in order to enhance each agency’s ability to carry out its own water-related goals and activities to improve watershed functions throughout North Carolina."
The team provides a forum for managers to share insights and work collaboratively on watershed issues. The team has also focused restoration efforts in four subwatersheds in North Carolina, including one in the Roanoke River basin.
Jim Hawhee is APNEP's representative on the WRIT team.
