CEDAR RIVER WATERSHED DISTRICT

To reduce stream flows as well as protect and improve water quality in the Cedar River Watershed.

Formed in 2007, CRWD is focused on improving water quality and reducing flooding within the Cedar River Watershed in Mower, Dodge, Freeborn and Steele counties, all within the State of Minnesota. The watershed district covers 45 miles of the river's course and has a 434.7-square-mile drainage basin of mostly fertile farmland.
