Le Sueur River One Watershed, One Plan

Description

In August 2020 the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources selected the Le Sueur River Watershed for a One Watershed, One Plan (1W1P) planning grant to create a comprehensive watershed management plan.  The goal of 1W1P is to align local water planning on major watershed boundaries with state strategies towards prioritized, targeted and measurable implementation plans.

The process is locally led through a Policy Committee composed of one elected official from each of the eight participating local government units within the watershed.  The Le Sueur River Watershed planning partnership includes Blue Earth County, Blue Earth Soil and Water Conservation District, Waseca County, Waseca Soil and Water Conservation District, Faribault County, Faribault Soil and Water Conservation District, Freeborn County, Freeborn Soil and Water Conservation District.  The planning process will also involve a broad range of stakeholders and public engagement activities.

Le Sueur River One Watershed, One Plan Citizen Survey

Project partners created a survey to give watershed residents and stakeholders an opportunity to provide input and identify important issues and concerns in the Le Sueur River Watershed. Your responses will help frame up resource issues of concern, guide goal development and help identify strategies to improve the health of the Le Sueur River Watershed.

Your feedback will help to shape the Le Sueur One Watershed One Plan development. Survey results will be presented to planning partners (local conservation staff, county commissioners, soil and water conservation district supervisors). Survey results and plan updates will be posted on the Le Sueur One Watershed One Plan website: https://www.co.waseca.mn.us/438/LeSueur-River-One-Watershed-One-Plan

The estimated time to complete this survey is 10-15 minutes. You can only take the survey once. The survey will be available online until Friday, September 24, 2021.
