Local Government Water Roundtable Comprehensive Water Planning and Management Policy Paper

On July 12, 2010, more than 380 local water management officials gathered in St. Cloud, Minn. at a "Water Management Summit", to begin discussions of present and future involvement of Local Government Units in the management of Minnesota's water resources. Leading up to the Summit, the Roundtable was formed to discuss and act on issues of common concern. The major topics identified by the Roundtable for further investigation and recommendations include: - Watershed and basic water management - Comprehensive water planning and management - State funding process for local water plan implementation. Following the Summit, a 30-member advisory committee of County, Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD), and Watershed District (WD) board members and staff from across the state was formed and divided into three subcommittees, with each subcommittee responsible for one of the major topic areas. This policy paper contains the key concepts, policy statements, findings, and recommendations of the Roundtable.
