CCWMO was established in 1996 when the State Board of Water & Soil Resources (BWSR) transferred management authority for the Carver Creek, Bevens Creek, South Fork Crow River, Chaska Creek and Hazeltine Bavaria Creek watershed districts to the County. Since then CCWMO has assumed planning, funding, regulation and implementation functions for the combined district in accordance with Minnesota State Statute.  CCWMO adopted its first Water Management Plan in 2001 and recently updated this plan in 2010.

The activities of the district are managed by the Carver County Board of Commissioners and an Advisory Committee. The mission of the CCWMO Advisory Committee is to work with CCWMO staff to proactively make recommendations to the County Board on matters relating to water management including;

  • Projects and project prioritization
  • Funding and water levy
  • Water Plan, Groundwater Plan & Solid Waste Plan
  • Water quality and TMDL program and projects
  • Education program and projects
