The Pelican River Watershed District Board of Managers is seeking your input to help us with updating the Districtís Water Management Plan. The District is involved with environmental education, water quality (monitoring, storm water, shoreline restoration), aquatic invasive species management, etc. All work that watershed districts do during the plan period is controlled by the updated plan. Minnesota Watershed Districts are required to update their Water Management Plan every 10 years.
The Pelican River Watershed District currently operates under a plan that does not expire until 2015. However, given the details and complexity of the plan, the difficulty of amending it, and the consequent need to be careful about its comprehensiveness, the preparation of the plan requires inputs from many constituents. The plan also requires some months to prepare, and prior to its adoptions and implementation, it must be vetted by numerous local and state agencies.
For your convenience, the Districtís current Revised Management Plan is found on our website: www.prwd.org. or attached RMP.

Public Informational Meetings Set for Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Study for St. Clair Lake
Lake St. Clair has been designated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as "impaired" as a result of its high nutrient levels. Minnesota Pollution Control Agency administers a process that involves preparing a plan to control future pollution levels in the lake. The planís objective will to be to set the maximum amount of Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDL) to the lake and still meet water quality standards. The Pelican River Watershed District will facilitate meetings that seek public input to the planning process.
We believe that you may have an interest in this process because of your position, your residence or business location, or the impact that such a plan may have on you.
In October 2012, a meeting was held to introduce the TMDL planning process, and the sources of its nutrients and the water quality goal of the St. Clair TMDL process.
In April, 2013, there will be a series of follow-up meetings to discuss results of the preliminary data analysis and modeling of St. Clair as well as the details of how such a plan will impact regulated entities, various agencies, and individuals. .
