Managing the watershed of the Red River of the North from a basin-wide perspective

 

Welcome to Our Website
Red River Watershed Management Board

Welcome to the Red River Watershed Management Board (RRWMB) website.  The RRWMB’s jurisdiction and authority encompasses the area managed by the individual watershed districts that have membership on the Board.  Seven watershed districts within the Red River Valley form the RRWMB including the Joe River, Two Rivers, Roseau River, Middle-Snake-Tamarac Rivers, Red Lake, Wild Rice, and Bois de Sioux. 

The RRWMB was created by an act of the Minnesota legislature in 1976 to provide an organization with a basin-wide perspective concerning flooding.  Historically, the activities of the RRWMB have centered on flood control.  Previous efforts in dealing with the flooding problem within the Red River Basin consisted of single projects within a localized area, planned with primary regard to local benefits.  The RRWMB actively promotes a basin-wide perspective for water management.

Streamgage Information

Streamgage Information: The following weblinks provide information about streamflow monitoring and data collected by the USGS in the Red River Basin. The Red River Watershed Management Board and its member watershed districts provide funding to the USGS to offset costs associated with data collection efforts and equipment maintenance. The CRED website listed in “Other Resources” allows users to take flood photos; report snowpack, river debris, ice jams, and the status of sandbag efforts; and to submit locations with a smart phone.
