New Year, New "One Watershed, One Plans"!

EOR is proud to announce our two recent One Watershed, One Plan projects. Having completed the "Lake Superior North One Watershed, One Plan" as a pilot project in 2016, EOR has continued to build on the success of that Plan and is currently working on both the Cannon River and the Pomme de Terre River One Watershed, One Plans.

The Cannon River One Watershed, One Plan:
EOR is working with 6 County Boards and County Soil and Water Conservation Districts in S.E. Minnesota to develop a comprehensive watershed management plan for the Cannon River planning area. Key aspects of the plan include:

  • prioritization of issues and goals for resources,
  • landscape and socioeconomic concerns using Zonation value-based modeling,
  • HSPF modeling,
  • state-wide goals,
  • and local input.

The plan will include a 10-year implementation plan with activities and programs that achieve the plan goals identified from local implementation plans and PTMApp BMP modeling.


The Pomme de Terre, One Watershed, One Plan:
EOR is currently working with 6 County Boards and County Soil and Water Conservation Districts in central-western Minnesota to develop a comprehensive watershed management plan for the Pomme de Terre River Watershed. Key aspects of the plan include:

  • prioritization of issues, goals and implementation activities for resources,
  • landscape and socioeconomic concerns using Zonation value-based HSPF,
  • and PTMApp modeling.

This Plan is being developed in a watershed that is currently undergoing it’s second round of intensive watershed monitoring and WRAPS development by MPCA.
