Managing the watershed of the Red River of the North from a basin-wide perspective

 

Welcome to Our Website
Red River Watershed Management Board

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.  Seven watershed districts within the Red River Valley form the RRWMB including the Joe River, Two Rivers, Roseau River, Middle-Snake-Tamarac Rivers, Red Lake, 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.
