“The mission statement of the Wabasha Soil & Water Conservation District is to provide technical, financial, and educational assistance for land and water management in a way that promotes a sound economy and sustains and enhances natural resources.”



Top 6 Priority Concerns

  3. ISTS/Ground Water Protection - protect ground water from contamination to ensure drinking water aquifers retains good quality.
  4. Forest and Pasture Land - improve forest and pasture land management to reduce soil erosion and increase water quality.
  5. Watershed Management Approach - focus on the watershed's condition as the starting point for water quality assessment, planning and measurement of results.  
  6. Urban Issues -  address urban issues with municipalities and townships to improve water quality through the use of urban BMP's
