Annual Activity & Financial Reports
Watershed management organizations are required by law to submit an annual activity report, financial report and financial audit. These documents serve as an annual records of our progress in meeting our mission, goals and objectives.
Water Quality Monitoring
One of the most important functions at the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization (MWMO) is to monitor and track changes in the water quality of the Mississippi River and in the local stormwater drainage systems. MWMO monitoring team staff conduct regular, year-round sampling of both river water itself as well as the stormsewers that discharge into the river.
The MWMO’s watershed assessment and research activities seek to develop a scientific base of knowledge that characterizes physical, chemical, cultural, historic, biological, social, economic, organizational and political resources of the MWMO to guide planning and management decisions in the watershed.
Watershed Management Plan
The Mississippi Watershed Management Organization is committed to protecting, managing and improving the water resources and habitat within our watershed boundaries. We proactively seek out future opportunities for stormwater treatment across the watershed that fits with the desired land use of the redevelopment occurring.
