Fall and winter are a time of change; something that some look forward to and that others dread. It’s a time of short days and long nights, end-of-year reports, and planning activities and events in preparation for warmer weather. More importantly, it is a time of reflection, family, and friends. So as winter settles in on our region, this issue of Headwaters reminds us that preparing BMPs for winter isn’t that difficult. It also highlights that in 2017 we begin looking at how the changes we have made since 2010 are impacting water quality and how partnerships can work to affect change in how BMPs are installed and better understand how people view water quality issues.
