A citizen group within the Le Sueur River Watershed has developed a list of recommendations to try to improve water quality in the Le Sueur River Watershed for future generations. We believe that farmers are good at figuring things out once they are given a challenge. The philosophy of the group is that we are leading with what is working and encourage more of it, based on recommendations from the citizens and landowners.

The “Seven Steps Towards Cleaner Water and River Health Recommended by the Le Sueur River Watershed Farmers and Citizens” (download pdf) is the result of a series of Le Sueur River Watershed Network Citizen Advisory Committee meetings from January – May 2013. We will discuss these further at another watershed celebration in late August or September 2013 and plan next steps together.
