The Upper Iowa River Watershed Resiliency Plan was developed by Northeast Iowa RC&D on behalf of the Upper Iowa River Watershed Management Authority (WMA) Board over a two year period from February 2017 to March 2019 with input from dozens of contributing partners who conducted research, analyzed opportunities, facilitated public input and recommended strategies and actions. The UIR WMA Board assisted with many aspects of the plan’s development, including community outreach, engagement, and education, as well as content development and review. They ultimately approved the plan and continue to actively work toward its implementation. Although the plan was brought together by NE Iowa RC&D, a List of Contributing Partners provides insight into the planning process and the extent of the research and partnership that occurred during plan development.
