Engaging stakeholder involvement in a large, diverse watershed is challenging. It is unlikely that any one individual “knows” all of the stakeholders, and as such, the development of mailing lists and notification of workgroup meetings can be daunting. The OWOW process was designed to be different from other planning processes. One critical difference is that OWOW was designed to be a “bottom-up”, rather than a “top-down” process. By encouraging participation from different groups of people and those holding varying viewpoints from throughout the Watershed, the capacity to reach larger numbers of stakeholders also grew.
