2018 Annual Report & Summary

Each spring VLAWMO creates an annual report for the year prior. This report serves as a way to inform our communities what we're working on, what issues the watershed faces, convey the latest studies and grant projects, and more. Financial summaries and a project work plan are available for transparency and for reporting to the MN Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR), who provides oversight for VLAWMO. These and previous year's reports can be found on our website under reports. Highlights for this year's report include:

  • Completion of Whitaker Treatment Wetlands
  • Completion of the Sucker Channel shoreline restoration 
  • Summaries of 2018's cost-share programs (what went in the ground)
  • A look at current community service and volunteer projects
  • Top 4 issues that the VLAWMO watershed faces
  • What you can do to support the watershed

We thank our many partners for a successful year of planning and building. Our work is made possible with support from community groups, cities and townships, schools, congregations, businesses, and residents. We look forward to the year ahead to continue building a community of watershed stewardship.
