One Watershed, One Plan (1W1P) is a program that supports partnerships of local government units in developing a prioritized, targeted, and measurable implementation plan designed to help gain more conservation on the landscape. Key principles include comprehensive water planning at the major watershed scale and aligning local plans and citizen input with state strategies.

Policy Committee
The Watonwan Watershed Planning Partnership Policy Committee is made up of elected officials from each County Board of Commissioners and Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) Board of Supervisors. The purpose of the Policy Committee is to determine priority issues and priority areas for implementation, make final decisions about the content of the plan and its submittal, and expenditure of funds allocated for plan development. The consultant should engage the Policy Committee throughout this process and regularly provide updates to the Policy Committee.
*Note the Policy Committee meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 1:00 pm as needed.

Steering Team

The purpose of the Steering Team is to provide logistical and process decision making in the plan development process and will work with the consultant to formulate recommendations for consideration by the Advisory Committee and Policy Committee. Local government staff from each county, including County staff, SWCD staff and others will coordinate and collaborate with the consultant as needed.

Citizen Advisory Committee
Public participation is critical to the success of this project. The consultant must lead a process that effectively engages all stakeholders. The Watonwan River Watershed has numerous stakeholders that want to be actively involved in this planning process. At the same time, there are many stakeholders that have not participated in previous planning efforts. It is in the best interest of the consultant and WWPP to actively engage all potential stakeholders throughout this process.
