A Public Meeting for the North Raccoon River Watershed Management Coalition 

A public meeting has been set for Friday, October 26th @10AM in at the Stewart Memorial, Community Hospital, Conference Center (1301 W. Main Street, Lake City). This meeting is for the North Raccoon River Watershed Management Coalition (NRRWMC). Made up of representatives from cities, counties, and soil and water conservation districts, the NRRWMC aims to address local water quantity and quality in the watershed.

This provides an opportunity to stay involved in the activities of the Iowa Watershed Approach (IWA) and ask questions about the program. Further, meetings are open to the public and anyone is welcome to attend!

The IWA is a vision for Iowa’s future. This is a future that voluntarily engages stakeholders. It does so throughout the watershed to achieve common goals, while moving toward a more resilient state. It is a replicable model for other communities where the landscape has lost its natural resilience to floods. This program is not only about Iowans helping Iowans, but also about demonstrating Iowans’ commitment. Specifically, Iowan’s commitment to agricultural stewardship, to the environment, to their neighbors, and to the future.

More About the North Raccoon Watershed

  • The North Raccoon River Watershed Project includes activities in the upper watershed. These activities are to reduce flooding and improve water quality, as well as infrastructure projects in Storm Lake to protect commercial and residential property from flooding.
  • In 2013, the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy named the NRRW a priority watershed. As a result, many organizations are currently active in the watershed and existing projects will complement the activities of the IWA.
  • A North Raccoon River Watershed Management Authority (WMA) was formed in 2016 to bring partners together to address watershed concerns.
