Introduction

The Buffalo Creek Watershed District (BCWD) was established under the order of the Minnesota Water Resources Board (now known as the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources) on January 30, 1969.  On February 8, 1974, the District’s Board of Managers formally adopted its first Overall Plan, in accordance with Minnesota Statutes.  The plan was developed to protect the public’s health and welfare and to conserve the natural resources of the District through land use planning, flood control and other conservation projects.

Mission

The BCWD was formed with the mission to:

1) help alleviate water problems, 2) enhance the living conditions of the area and 3) maintain or improve the economic well being of the residents of the District.

The District has in the past and will continue to strive towards the realization of this mission by:

  • Serving as a link between residents and governmental agencies; Providing technical assistance to citizens and governmental agencies;
  • Providing a means of financial assistance for the implementation of environmental projects; and
  • Coordinating intergovernmental efforts.
