Performance-based Environmental Management - The Hewitt Creek Model
Download Full Text
The Hewitt Creek Model uses a performance-based management process (Figure 1) to set goals that are environmentally sound and economically practical for the watershed. Citizens together decide on incentives for management practices and evaluation of soil condition, nitrogen (N), and phosphorus (P) levels. Farm operators learn to track and interpret performance measures so they can revise their goals and practices for continued improvement.
