Following a review and incorporating comments received on the draft existing conditions, the final Black/Harmony/Farewell Creek Existing Conditions Report was adopted by the Conservation Board of Directors at their April 2011 meeting.

The Existing Conditions Report is an 18-chapter compilation of watershed-related information that will be used in Phase 2 and Phase 3 watershed planning activities to develop specific strategies to maintain, improve, and restore the watershed's integrity.
