Development of the Verde River Watershed Report Card
The first Verde River Watershed Report Card is the collective effort of dozens of stakeholders through the Verde watershed. Indicators in the report card were selected to assess the health of three different values in the watershed: water, habitat, and communities.
Due to heavy rainfall in the past year, we saw many indicators stay steady or decline in their score. Over the past decade data has shown a significantly improving trend in the Chesapeake Bay. This trend will continue to improve with the collective effort of the people who live here. More information about indicators and grades is available at ecoreportcard.org
