Our History

CWH was founded in 1996 by Dorothy Green to promote more efficient use of stormwater resources by providing leadership, guidance, and technical assistance to agencies and organizations to affect sound watershed planning and management. We have a proven track record of strengthening coordination of regional watershed planning, measuring and tracking progress towards achieving healthier urban environments and fostering regional landscape ethic that reduces water use through the planting of native and regionally appropriate vegetation. Today, our programs reflect the complexity of water resiliency in a changing climate and continue to address diverse themes such as, urban storm water capture and recharge, community capacity building in multi-benefit green infrastructure projects, water quality monitoring, and the implementation of sustainable landscapes.
