Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategies (WRAPS)
Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) is a planning and management framework that engages stakeholders within a particular watershed in a process to:
- Identify watershed restoration and protection needs and opportunities
- Establish management goals for the watershed community
- Create a cost-effective action plan to achieve goals
- Implement the action plan
WRAPS represents a shift from "top-down" government intervention in watershed issues, to a more citizen-stakeholder approach, in which funds, guidance and technical assistance are provided for stakeholders to reach consensus on issues of relevance in their watershed, and then design and execute a plan to address those issues.

KCARE is working with WRAPS coordinators from around the state to update their 9-Element WRAPS plans. When the plans are approved by KDHE and EPA, we will post the updated versions here. For copies of other WRAPS plans, visit the Kansas WRAPS website, www.kswraps.org/.
