University of Wisconsin River Falls – University Center, River Falls, WI
This year’s conference features national and state conservation leaders sharing their visions for water quality and strategies to active them. The conference explores phosphorus reductions strategies and the emerging farmer-led council in the St. Croix, along with the case studies of civic engagement for land stewardship and water quality.
Minnesota and Wisconsin have US EPA approval for the St. Croix water quality improvement plan (a.k.a. TMDL). As implementation of this plan moves forward, community and citizen involvement remains a key for a getting the job done.
Strong community commitment and sincere civic engagement will be required to successfully implement water quality projects to meet the goal of reducing phosphorus by 100 tons per year.
