Water Quality Initiative – Year 1 & 2

 

Within the Boone River Watershed, Prairie Creek (Humboldt and Kossuth Counties) and Eagle Creek (Wright County) were chosen as 1 of 13 demonstration projects under the Water Quality Initiative.  These projects have a duration of 3 years and we are excited to make them successful for water quality.
