Public input solicited on Water Management Plan amendment continues

The District is in the process of amending its Third Watershed Management Plan (hereinafter "Plan") approved in 2011 and amended in 2015 (see right-hand column). The current amendment process is in response to requests from the District's Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) to align the Plan with water governance documents in the municipalities within the District and adjacent watershed management organizations. This amendment focuses on the standards in Section 3 and implementation Program in Section 4; it also revises sections with outdated laws and completed projects.

The Draft Plan Amendment is provided below in Sections for review and comments.

Please email your comments, or any questions or concerns, to Linda Loomis (naiadconsulting@gmail.com), Della Schall Young (della@youngecg.com), or Steve Christopher (steve.christopher@state.mn.us).
