This report, prepared for COMCURE, the Commission for the Preservation and Management of the Watershed of the Reventazon River, of Cartago, Costa Rica, examines the deterioration of the health of the Reventazon River watershed by means of the Watershed Sustainability Index. The watershed was divided into three regions based on altitude and environmental aspects, and the index was applied to the three regions individually. With the final results of the index for each region in mind, the report contains recommendations on ways to improve the sustainability of the watershed.
