The organization was established in 1996 when the State Board of Water & Soil Resources gave water management authority for the Carver Creek, Bevens Creek, South Fork Crow River, Chaska Creek and Hazeltine Bavaria Creek watershed districts to Carver County. The County then assumed planning, funding, regulation and implementation functions for the combined district in accordance with Minnesota State Statute

Carver County Water Management  Organization 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
