*Lower rum river meeting

February 15 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

The Lower Rum River Watershed Management Organization (LRRWMO) (http://lrrwmo.org) is a joint powers special purpose unit of government including the cities of Ramsey, Anoka, and portions of Coon Rapids and Andover. The WMO Board is made up of representatives from each of these cities. This organization seeks to protect and improve lakes, rivers, streams, groundwater, and other water resources across municipal boundaries. These goals are pursued through

  • water quality and flow monitoring
  • investigative studies of problems
  • coordinating improvement projects
  • education campaigns
  • a permitting process
  • others at the WMO’s discretion

Resources of particular importance include the Rum River, Trott Brook, numerous ditches that drain to the Rum River, Round Lake, Lake Itasca, and numerous wetlands. The Mississippi River is also notable, as it borders the southern edge of the WMO’s jurisdictional area. Because little of the land area in the LRRWMO drains directly to the Mississippi, but rather to the Rum River, the Mississippi receives protection from the WMO primarily through management of the Rum.
