Welcome

Welcome to the Red River Watershed Management Board (RRWMB) website.  The RRWMB’s jurisdiction and authority encompasses the area managed by the individual watershed districts that have membership on the Board.  Eight watershed districts within the Red River Valley form the RRWMB including the Joe River, Two Rivers, Roseau River, Middle-Snake-Tamarac Rivers, Red Lake, Sand Hill River, Wild Rice, and Bois de Sioux. 

The RRWMB was created by an act of the Minnesota legislature in 1976 to provide an organization with a basin-wide perspective concerning flooding.  Historically, the activities of the RRWMB have centered on flood control.  Previous efforts in dealing with the flooding problem within the Red River Basin consisted of single projects within a localized area, planned with primary regard to local benefits.  The RRWMB actively promotes a basin-wide perspective for water management.

What's New

Red River flooding periodically threatens western Minnesota and eastern North Dakota towns. But by letting rivers meander again and restoring wetlands, MCEA and other groups are slowing the rampaging Red River while also creating new and better habitat for fish, birds and other wildlife.
