The Clearwater River Watershed District has been working to promote, protect, and preserve the waters of the District since its establishment as a unit of local government on April 9, 1975, by order of the Minnesota Water Resources Board, acting under authority of the Chapter 112, MSA (the Minnesota Watershed Act). Though the original thrust of the CRWD was the improvement of water quality in the Clearwater River Chain of Lakes, its scope has grown into a complete program of water management within its boundaries.
