A 10-year comprehensive plan with more than 200 projects on the waiting list dominated discussion of the Sauk River Watershed District (SRWD) presentation at a recent Douglas County commissioners' meeting.


The plan, updated once every decade, aims to educate and to monitor programs that will actively protect and improve the lakes, rivers and streams in the watershed. Revisions are being made to the current plan that will be implemented between 2013-2022.
