Event Details

How do we achieve resilience in the Upper Iowa Watershed?

The Upper Iowa River Watershed Resiliency Plan, which was developed by the Upper Iowa River Watershed Management Authority and their partners, seeks to improve and protect ground and surface water quality; reduce the risk to and impact of flooding to social, economic and ecological systems; and build human and landscape resiliency. It is a comprehensive plan that calls us all to action and it sets the stage for success.

Join Ross Evelsizer, Watershed Planner from Northeast Iowa Resource Conservation and Development, for a program discussing how increased flood frequencies, repeated damage to public infrastructure, changing precipitation patterns, and water quality concerns impact the future of Winneshiek County residents.

Hear about how these issues are being addressed by the Upper Iowa Watershed Management Authority and how you can be involved!

Sliding scale ($5-$15) for donations accepted. NEIPJC appreciates your support in bringing quality programming to Northeast Iowa and beyond.
