Recovery Potential Screening: Tools for Comparing Impaired Waters Restorability

Recovery Potential Screening: Tools for Comparing Impaired Waters Restorability

Monitoring under the Clean Water Act has identified tens of thousands of polluted US water bodies that are in need of restoration. Many healthy waters without watershed protection strategies are also at risk of becoming polluted. This Recovery Potential Screening (RPS) website provides technical tools and methods to help government and private programs compare watersheds and plan their efforts for greater likelihood of restoration and protection success. RPS users during the past ten years have included over 20 state water quality programs, local watershed groups, river basin managers (US and international), tribes and federal environmental agencies.
