Office of the Legislative Auditor - Program Evaluation Division

Watershed Management

January 25, 2007

We evaluated how Minnesota manages its watersheds and found a complex system of multiple local, state, and federal entities with a mixed record of performance at the local level and inadequate oversight from the Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR). We recommend that the Legislature change BWSR’s governing structure to help ensure it acts in the overall best interests of the state.
