CRWP responds directly to the needs of Member communities, elected officials, engineers, planners, law directors, and other professional advisors by helping them update comprehensive plans, zoning regulations, and other programs guiding land use. CRWP has assisted communities by introducing innovative practices that maintain natural resource functions and prevent or minimize flooding, erosion, and water quality problems. These practices include CRWP’s recommended watershed management tools for riparian and wetland setbacks, conservation development, improved erosion and sediment control, and comprehensive storm water management.

CRWP also conducts watershed studies and planning efforts that support local decision makers by providing technical background. These studies have included an analysis of riparian setbacks on property values, technical support for riparian and wetland setbacks, analysis of alternative home sewage treatment systems in conservation development, and alternative parking arrangements and codes.
