MWMO COVID-19 Updates

Last Updated: September 10, 2021

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization (MWMO) has implemented a number of operational changes. These temporary changes are designed to protect the health and safety of our employees, partners and the public. They have been made in accordance with state and federal guidance, and will be updated as the situation evolves. All future updates will be posted at this web address.

Currently, the MWMO is taking the following actions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:

Visitor Safety

As of September 10, 2021, the MWMO Stormwater Park and Learning Center is open to visitors on a limited basis.

Until further notice:

  • Front doors to our building will only be open during limited hours, and only on days that MWMO staff is hosting events. Please check our website or call our front desk at 612-746-4970 to confirm our current building and event schedule.
