Crow Wing River Watershed
Crow Wing County seeks input for the Crow Wing River Watershed Comprehensive Planning Process
Crow Wing County, on behalf of itself, Becker, Cass, Hubbard, Todd, and Wadena Counties, and the Becker, Cass, Hubbard, Todd, Crow Wing, and Wadena County Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs), announces the development of the Crow Wing River Comprehensive Watershed Plan. This Board of Water Soil Resource (BWSR) Program is called One Watershed One Plan (1W1P). The program aims to address water quality concerns and protect resources throughout the watershed by planning and partnering across jurisdictional boundaries.
1W1P Goals are:
Align local water planning purposes and procedures under watershed boundaries to create a systematic, watershed-wide, science-based approach to watershed management (Minnesota Statutes 103B.801).
Acknowledge and build off the existing local government, water plan services, and local capacity.
Incorporate and make use of data and information, including watershed restoration and protection strategies under section 114D.26;
Solicit input and engage experts from agencies, citizens, and stakeholder groups; focus on implementing prioritized and targeted actions capable of achieving measurable progress.
Crow Wing County is requesting citizen input before the planning process starts. Please complete the digital survey or send written comments before 4:00 PM, Friday, June 09, 2023.
