Project Overview

This project will place the Cedar River watershed on a sustainable and clearly understood implementation process for comprehensive water management. All people living in the watershed and all groups operating and managing land in the watershed, are responsible stakeholders in the effort. Objectives for this phase of the project include:
1. Develop a comprehensive watershed restoration and protection strategy.
2. Continue development of a more coordinated and comprehensive citizen participation process.
3. Conduct targeted stream monitoring that will be coordinated with the USDA’s Mississippi River Basin Initiative (MRBI); and
4. Incorporate agricultural BMP inventory data into the watershed modeling program.
