One Watershed One Plan

Watershed Map

The purpose of the One Watershed, One Plan program is to develop comprehensive watershed management plans that: 

  • align local water planning purposes and procedures under this chapter and chapters 103C and 103D on watershed boundaries to create a systematic, watershed-wide, science-based approach to watershed management;
  • acknowledge and build off existing local government structure, water plan services, and local capacity;
  • incorporate and make use of data and information, including watershed restoration and protection strategies under section 114D.26;
  • solicit input and engage experts from agencies, citizens, and stakeholder groups; focus on implementation of prioritized and targeted actions capable of achieving measurable progress; and
  • serve as a substitute for a comprehensive plan, local water management plan, or watershed management plan developed or amended, approved, and adopted, according to chapter 103B, 103C or 103D.
