Project Overview

The purpose of this project is for Lake County Soil and Water Conservation District to continue to assist with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s watershed approach and Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) process in the Rainy River Headwaters and Cloquet River watersheds. As part of this, Lake County Soil and Water Conservation District will lead efforts to increase levels of civic engagement and community participation in support of the current WRAPS process. This project will provide local public participation work through the end of the first WRAPS cycle in both watersheds. Working alongside other Minnesota Pollution Control Agency partners, Lake County Soil and Water Conservation District will also provide further guidance of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s watershed approach to address local needs through participation in technical, planning, and core team meetings as well as review of produced reports.
