The Minnesota Association of Watershed Districts Summer Tour made a stop at the Nordick Farm near Rothsay on Thursday. Gene Tiedemann with the Red Lake Watershed District says the projects on display highlight water quality. “They are meandering a stream that wasn’t functioning as it should. It was full of pollution and sloughing banks. The Red Lake Watershed District is large, measuring in at 6,000 square miles, and is the largest watershed in Minnesota. Tiedemann says the key to success is coordination between the many entities. “We have the same source of projects in our area. A big part of it is using the different partners, like the DNR and MPCA, to bring these types of projects into the watershed.”
