The city of Superior is working on a plan to restore and protect several watersheds in Douglas County.
Superior and Douglas County officials held an open house event Wednesday to discuss their plan.
This planning effort will be a yearlong process to develop a framework for managing efforts to both improve water quality in degraded areas and to protect overall watershed health.
The City is working closely with the Douglas County Land and Water Conservation Department to continue a collaborative process that incorporates the nine required elements for watershed plans to be eligible for state and federal implementation funds.
Superior Water Resource Specialist, Andrea Crouse says, "Today is about getting input. And hearing what people care about what they know about the watersheds, they might have a specific understanding of an area because they live right by it. It's also about telling them what we know."
Restoration and protection efforts include Nemadji, Black, Pokegama and St. Louis River watersheds within Wisconsin.
