Watersheds United Vermont (WUV) is a state-wide network of local groups dedicated to the health of their home watersheds. Our mission is to empower community-based watershed groups in all parts of the state to protect and restore Vermont’s waters.

Our members include informal neighbor groups who join together for water quality monitoring, river cleanups and public education, as well as staffed organizations that carry out major restoration projects.  Read WUV's statewide accomplishments report for 2015.

We support community-based action to improve watershed health by:
  • Sharing information and resources among
    existing watershed groups;
  • Offering workshops and networking sessions to share best practices on topics of interest;
  • Leveraging resources to expand the capacity of new or existing groups;
  • Providing information and coordination for groups who want to participate in the policy-making process;
  • Linking watershed associations with partners who can provide technical, financial, or other assistance.
