Watershed Planning

Watershed Management Planning and Coordination

Water planning in Minnesota has transitioned from a county scale to a watershed scale. As more of these plans are approved and implemented, coordination between cities, counties, watershed districts, and other water management authorities requires greater cooperation and problem-solving. Using a science-based approach to identify solutions for water quality and quantity issues across the state requires collaborative efforts across many of our local government offices.

We have the technical capabilities to navigate our clients through the watershed planning and funding processes, resulting in successful water improvement projects.
