Codorus Creek Watershed Implementation Plan Update

For the full RFP, click here – Codorus Creek WIP RFP


The York County Conservation District (YCCD) is seeking a consulting firm or team to update and replace the 2007 Codorus Creek Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP) to better reflect current management strategies and effectively target restoration efforts in order to help meet Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDL) and local water quality goals.


YCCD is a county government office devoted to assisting residents with their natural resources and environmental concerns. YCCD’s mission is to be proactive in providing conservation education, technical services, and financial assistance to enable the citizens of York County to be good stewards of our natural resources.

In 2007, the Codorus Creek WIP was developed to serve as a management tool for local governing agencies and entities, nonprofit organizations, watershed groups, and other stakeholders for future stream restoration efforts in the watershed.

This project will update and replace the 2007 Codorus Creek WIP and enhance restoration efforts that have already taken place and continue to take place in the Codorus Creek Watershed. With the momentum behind the York Countywide Action Plan (CAP), an updated Codorus Creek WIP will help more effectively target restoration efforts in order to help meet TMDL and local water quality goals. A lot has occurred in the Codorus Creek Watershed since 2007, and the Codorus Creek WIP should reflect that and provide a clear direction for future restoration efforts.
