Marsh River Watershed One Watershed, One Plan
The Wild Rice Planning Partnership is initiating a comprehensive watershed management plan for the Wild Rice Marsh River Watershed (map available at the District office). The Wild Rice Planning Partnership was created through a Memorandum of Agreement between the Counties of Becker, Clay, Clearwater, Mahnomen, Norman and Polk; the Becker, Clay, Clearwater, Mahnomen, Norman, East Polk and West Polk Soil and Water Conservation Districts; and the Wild Rice Watershed District; to create a watershed-based plan under the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources 1W1P Program.
Stakeholders in the planning area, which consists of all the Wild Rice Watershed District and parts of Becker, Clay, Clearwater, Mahnomen, Norman and Polk counties are invited to submit priority resource concerns and issues that you feel should be addressed in the planning process and resulting plan.
Please submit your responses to Kevin Ruud at kevin@wildricewatershed.org or the Wild Rice Watershed District, 11 5th Ave. E, Ada, MN 56510 by Tuesday, May 21st.
There will be a public informational kick-off meeting scheduled following the public comment period to review watershed data, present and discuss priority resource concerns and issues identified by the stakeholders, and provide an opportunity to gain further feedback.
Documents about providing input on priority resource concerns and issues and providing information on known reports, studies and technical information that should be considered during the Wild Rice Marsh River Watershed One Watershed, One Plan process are available by contacting the District office.
