Since 2007

Cedar River Watershed District

Formed in 2007, CRWD aims to reduce flooding and improve water quality within the district. This includes nearly 435 square miles of drainage basin, mostly fertile farmland, in parts of Mower, Dodge, Freeborn and Steele counties, all in Minnesota. Within the district is about 45 miles of the Cedar River, starting at the headwaters near Hayfield and flowing through the City of Austin down to the Iowa border.

CRWD's of Board of Managers meet every third Wednesday of the month at 6:00 PM at the Mower SWCD office, 1408 21st Ave. N.W., in Austin. Meetings are open to the public but also available to view online via a link provided in the meeting agenda. The board's seven members are appointed to terms by their respective county commissioners.

Next meeting:  6:00 PM on Wed., Nov. 17, 2021     AGENDA
