The legendary Mississippi River defines the western and southern boundaries of CRWD and is the destination for all of the District’s water resources. Our lakes, streams, wetlands, and groundwater all flow to the river, making it a high priority for protection and conservation.
Since everything flows to the river, our watershed health is a critical component for a clean Mississippi River. You can help CRWD achieve its mission to protect and preserve the Mississippi River with simple acts like:
- Keeping leaves and debris out of the street
- Preventing pollutants such as oil and gasoline, from entering the watershed
- Taking proactive approaches to water resource management, such as planting rain gardens and constructing rain barrels
