It’s official: the US-Environmental Protection Agency has re-certified the ten-year revision of the Marengo River Watershed Action Plan! Restoration projects in the watershed will continue to receive elevated funding priority, stakeholders will have an accessible document to turn to for updated information on hydrological and ecological issues and progress, completed and ongoing projects, and much more.
This will be a dynamic document, subject to periodic updates as events move forward. As the original document made history as one of the first in Wisconsin, this revision makes history as the first plan of its type to be re-certified for another decade of relevance and service to Wisconsin water resources and ecosystems.
We again wish to thank our partner organizations: WDNR, Ashland and Bayfield County Land and Water Conservation Departments, Mashkiiziibii Natural Resources Department, Wisconsin Wetlands Association, Northland College-Burke Center, US-Forest Service, and many others for their input working on our editorial team or by sharing exciting new watershed science. And a very special thank-you to the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program and the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation Olson-Grafsgaard Family Fund for the financial support that made this possible.
