Local governments have worked hard over the years to protect and restore our water resources through planning efforts within each county. In recent years, the Minnesota Board of Soil and Water Resources encouraged local governments to partner with neighboring counties to work across jurisdictional boundaries and plan resources on a watershed wide scale. This process is called One Watershed One Plan (1W1P).
The Nemadji 1W1P partners include Carlton County, Pine County, Carlton SWCD and Pine SWCD. The effort will be lead by a Steering Team made up of staff from these offices. Our Policy Committee, made of elected officials from both County's Boards and SWCD Supervisors, will approve the content of the plan, serve as a liaison to their representative boards and act of behalf of their board.
Keep up to date on the planning processes by visiting this website or contact the Carlton SWCD to learn how you can contribute to the plan!
