Vermillion River Watershed Joint Powers Organization seeks public opinions on 10-year plan

The Vermillion River Watershed Joint Powers Organization is looking for public input to develop the next 10-year watershed plan to improve water quality and overall health of the watershed.


The public will have three opportunities to attend a "community conversation" workshop, scheduled from 6–8 p.m. on the following dates:

  • March 26 at Pleasant Hill Library, 1490 S. Frontage Road, Hastings
  • April 1 at the Scott County Library, 110 J. Roberts Way, Elko New Market
  • April 10 at the Dakota County Extension and Conservation Center, 4100 220th St., Farmington


Community conversations offer an opportunity for people living in the watershed to express their views about water resource issues and priorities that the Joint Powers Organization Board will consider as the watershed plan is developed.


Each meeting will include discussions of water resource issues and strategies to achieve water resource goals. Space is limited and reservations are recommended by emailing or calling 952-891-7000.


Twenty communities and townships in central Dakota County and eastern Scott County are completely or partially included in the Vermillion River Watershed. To learn more or find out if you reside within the watershed, visit
