Water Quality Management Plan


Open House, June 22nd, 6PM at the NRD Office-details

The NRD has launched a district-wide effort to identify sources of nonpoint source pollution, quantify and characterize them, and identify solutions. A Water Quality Management Plan will be produced through this effort, which will help the NRD protect water resources and the environment. It will also help fund any recommendations.

Several streams and lakes within the NRD have been identified as impaired due to pollutants including nutrients (phosphorus and nitrogen), sediment, E. coli bacteria, pesticides, and several others. Recommended solutions will be voluntary, therefore input and collaboration from landowners, citizens, natural resource agencies, and other stakeholders is important to the NRD. This will help prioritize actions identified in the plan and provide valuable information from other perspectives. To gather this information a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and a Citizen’s Advisory Committee (CAC) have been formed. Additionally, information will be made available through this website, social media, traditional media, and at public open houses.
