St. Louis River 1W1P

One Watershed, One Plan

What is One Watershed, One Plan?

Local governments have worked hard over the years to protect and restore our water resources through planning efforts within each county. In recent years, the Minnesota Board of Soil and Water Resources encouraged local governments to partner with neighboring counties to work across jurisdictional boundaries and plan resources on a watershed wide scale. This process is called One Watershed One Plan (1W1P). The goal of this effort is to develop a comprehensive watershed management plan that targets projects to protect and restore the watershed’s most valuable resources.

Who is Involved with the St. Louis River 1W1P
The St. Louis River 1W1P partners include St. Louis County, Carlton County, South St. Louis Soil and Water Conservation District, North St. Louis Soil and Water Conservation District, Carlton County Soil and Water Conservation District, and the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa. The effort will be led by the Steering Team made up of staff from these offices. Our Policy Committee, made up of elected officials from the County Boards, SWCD Boards  and Fond du Lac Tribe, will approve the content of the plan, serve as a liaison to their representative governing entities and act on behalf of their constituents. An Advisory Committee will also be formed, to provide input to the Policy Committee.
