International Joint Commission Watershed Board Wants Your Help!

As part of the ongoing project to recommend water quality objectives and alert levels for the boundary waters of the Rainy-Lake of the Woods watershed, the second series of public meetings are planned for July 8 by the International Joint Commission.  These sessions are an opportunity to hear perspectives from the public on aquatic ecosystem health

The IJC’s Rainy-Lake of the Woods Watershed Board launched a project this year to develop recommendations for water quality and aquatic ecosystem health Objectives and Alerts (advisory triggers) for the Rainy-Lake of the Woods Watershed.  They would like to hear from you on your perspectives and expectations for aquatic ecosystem health in this basin.  For an explanation of how Objectives and Alerts are used in boundary waters, please go to: https://ijc.org/en/rlwwb/water-quality-objectives-and-alerts.

Please consider attending one of these public sessions:

  • Our Public Workshop on Monday, July 8 at 2:30 – 4:00 pm at the Clarion Lakeside Inn (immediately following the LOWDSA Summer Meeting)
  • A Community Conversation on the evening of Monday, July 8 from 6:30-8:00 pm at the Clarion Lakeside Inn for those who are unable to attend the workshop.
