Join us for our monthly H.O.P. into the Park program (Healthy Older People), made possible by the Friends of Whitewater. This will be an on-line webinar presentation. Sheila Harmes the Whitewater Watershed Project Coordinator as well as the Winona County Water Planner will present “Whitewater River Watershed: Overview of Condition and Strategies to Improve.” The presentation will include a review of water quality, issues of concern and developing strategies to improve and protect resources in the watershed.
The Whitewater River Watershed is included in a larger watershed called the Mississippi River-Winona. Right now the three counties and SWCDs within the Whitewater Watershed are working together to help develop a watershed management plan. This is part of the State’s transition to Watershed-based plans (developed along watershed boundaries, rather than political boundaries). This includes a review of water quality, issues of concern and developing strategies to improve and protect resources in the watershed.
