One Watershed One Plan

The Red Lake River watershed has been selected as a pilot area to develop One Watershed One Plan.

Pilot plans will build on existing efforts, using current local water plans, state and local knowledge and a systematic, science-based approach to watershed management.  The resulting plans will address the largest threats that provide the greatest environmental benefits to each watershed.  The pilot program will involve a broad range of stakeholders, including local governments, state agencies, and community members as true partners in the planning process.

Local Units of Government participating in the Red Lake River One Watershed One Plan include:  Red Lake County, Polk County, Pennington County, Red Lake County SWCD, West Polk SWCD, Pennington SWCD and the Red Lake River Watershed District.
