ROCHESTER, Minn.- Water resource management has been planed at the county level.
However, traveling water doesn’t stop in certain counties. The Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources tell KIMT that water flows according to high and low points on the landscape, not county boundaries.
So the program called One Watershed, One Plan is looking to combine and improve information on existing water plans throughout the state.
The nine new planning areas are:
-Hawk Creek Watershed
-Joe River and Two Rivers Watershed
-Mississippi River Headwaters Watershed
-Redeye River Watershed
-Rum River Watershed
-Shell Rock River and Winnebago Watershed
- Local governments collaborate on water planning
- Educators collaborate on trauma-informed education
- Investors and Innovators collaborating on growing Rochester
- Collaboration makes a simulated plane accident training possible
- Promoting racial equity in local governments
- Thanksgiving plans for local residents
- Senate rejects rival Dem, GOP plans for reopening government
- Local father raising money for water fountains
- Government shutdown impacting animals
- Helping the immigrant community connect with local government
