CRWD seeks citizen advisors to protect, improve Cedar River watershed

Revamped CAC group to continue work of Vision 2020 Waterways

Tim Ruzek, CRWD outreach coordinator and water planner
Crews construct one of three earthen berms — ravine-stabilization structures — in fall 2017 on the Hull-Pederson properties in Austin Township. The work was part of CRWD’s Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) initiative to build 25 projects on farmland to improve water quality and reduce flooding. CIP will be reviewed and discussed by the new CAC members as it’s a major initiative for the watershed district.
New canoe-kayak access in Austin on the Cedar River State Water opened in August 2017. Water access and recreation will be one of the focus areas for CRWD’s new Citizens Advisory Committee.

Formed in 2007, CRWD works to reduce flooding and improve water quality on the Cedar River State Water Trail and its tributaries in southern Minnesota.
