Watershed Management Plan

The Black Dog Watershed Management Organization (BDWMO) Watershed Management Plan (WMP) sets the vision and guidelines for managing surface waters within the boundaries of the BDWMO. The WMP provides data and other background information, outlines the applicable regulations, assesses watershed-wide and resource-specific issues, sets goals and policies for the BDWMO and its members, and lists implementation tasks to achieve the goals.

In the Fall of 2020 the BDWMO commissioners, member cities, and partners began the process of updating the BDWMO Watershed Management Plan. At the April 20, 2022 meeting the BDWMO commissioners authorized the submittal of the draft 2022-2032 BDWMO Watershed Management Plan for official 60-day review consistent with Minnesota Statutes 103B.231. Comments on the draft Plan will be received through July 12, 2022.
Comments may be sent to the BDWMO Engineers at gwilliams@barr.com.
