The Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategies (WRAPS) grant project for each major watershed is where the community members and any interested person or entity can come together to learn about the current health of the water systems within each major watershed, and take an active role in helping to shape the planning process for each watershed for the remainder of the ten-year cycle. Planning and prioritization help to clarify where money spent on protection and restoration projects would be most beneficial and effective to achieve conservation that benefits the physical landscape, water resources, habitat, while also providing benefits to the people of Itasca County. In the scope of community engagement, the general concept is to inform, involve, and empower the watershed residents, communities, and civic leaders to protect and restore water resources through thoughtful planning. The product of these projects is to create a watershed plan, which is called the WRAPS document for each major watershed, which also encompasses any Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) report created as the result of new water body impairments.
