About the MWMO
The Mississippi Watershed Management Organization works to protect and improve water quality, habitat and natural resources in an urban watershed that drains directly into the Mississippi River. We are a joint-powers local government unit and one of approximately three dozen watershed organizations in the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
The MWMO partners with our member communities to invest in green infrastructure that captures, cleans and reuses stormwater. Our team monitors and tracks water quality in the watershed and conducts education and outreach to promote active environmental stewardship among residents.
