This page is designed to give some quick information on the Red River Basin and the web sites related to the Basin.  Our main purpose is to serve as a portal, to help our seven northwest Minnesota counties easily connect with more detailed sites on the basin.  (If you are not sure where the Basin is located please see the map page.)

The NWRDC's goal with this page is to help County Commissioners, the Joint Powers Board, the Northern Counties Board , and the Rural Counties Caucus find information quickly from a relatively neutral source. 

The International Coalition (TIC)

The mission of The International Coalition for Land/Water Stewardship in the Red River Basin (TIC) is to promote wise stewardship of land and water resources in the Red River Basin.  The objective of TIC is to be an international model for communication, cooperation, and action.  The purpose of TIC is to build consensus on land and water issues and to develop wise stewardship of land and water resources in the Red River Basin through citizen involvement and education.

Red River Basin Disaster Information Network

In response to a series of workshops held in the Red River region by the IJC Red River Basin Task Force following the floods of Spring '97, stakeholders expressed the need and desire to utilize Internet-based technologies to enhance coordination of information sharing, before, during and after disaster. This network is a beginning. It is offered as a means to facilitate exchange of vital information, and to provide a venue for the coordination of regional efforts

This site contains a good directory and other interesting information.  

Red River Watershed Management Board (RRWMB)

The Red River Watershed Management Board was created by legislative act in the 1976 session for the purpose of instituting, coordinating and financing projects to alleviate flooding and to assure beneficial use of water in the watershed of the Red River of the North and its tributaries.  The scope of the RRWMB's jurisdiction and authority encompasses the area managed by the individual Watershed Districts which have membership on the Board.

This site includes a brief history of several watersheds and their current addresses and board of directors.
