Cannon River One Watershed, One Plan

In 2016 planning partners joined together to submit an application to the Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) to develop One Watershed, One Plan (1W1P) for the Cannon River Watershed. The goal of 1W1P is to align local water planning on major watershed boundaries with state strategies towards prioritized, targeted and measureable implementation plans. In August 2016, BWSR selected the Cannon River as one of seven major watersheds across the state to receive a planning grant.

In late 2016, the County and SWCD Boards in each of the six counties predominantly located within the watershed, along with the Belle Creek Watershed District and the North Cannon River Watershed Management Organization, entered into a Memorandum of Agreement for the purpose of developing a watershed plan. The planning area encompasses 952,933 acres and a wide variety of land uses.

The process is locally lead through a Policy Committee comprised of one elected official from each of the 14 Local Government Units within the watershed. It will involve a broad range of stakeholders throughout the process including the use of an Advisory Committee and public meetings. The resulting plan will address the most significant threats to our water resources and an implementation strategy that provides the greatest benefit to the watershed.
