Cannon River Watershed Partnership

At the Cannon River Watershed Partnership, we make Clean Water Happen!

At the Cannon River Watershed Partnership, We believe that everyone should be able to swim and fish in healthy rivers and lakes and drink clean water from our wells.

How We Do This: At CRWP we believe in community-based problem solving solutions, so we get citizens, government staff, scientists, and business owners into the room to create, evaluate, and implement clean water solutions that serve everyone's needs.

What We Do:
We Make Clean Water Happen!
  • We coordinate a Cannon River Watershed-Wide CleanUP in 10 communities. In 2017, this CleanUP attracted over 200 volunteers who cleaned up over 8,000 pounds of litter. 
  • We stop raw sewage from entering rivers and lake by helping communities install effective wastewater systems
  • We work with farmers to help them run more profitable farms while also protecting our rivers, lakes, and drinking water from pollution.
  • We encourage landowners to plan deep-rooted native grasses and flowers on river banks and lake shores.
  • We inspire residents to take action for cleaner water by talking about water issues with government staff and elected officials.
