Our Mission

  

“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

  1. Soil Erosion - prevention of soil erosion and       sedimentation from runoff from agricultural land, construction sites and stream banks
  2. Nutrient and Manure Management - protection of surface waters by reducing contaminants entering the water. Use of correct methods to prevent nutrient loading from manure and artificial fertilizers from both agricultural and urban areas.
  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
