What is the Project Team?

The Bois de Sioux Watershed District is a subwatershed ofthe Red River of the North
Basin. In December of 1998, many agencies and organizations signed the Red River
Basin Mediation Agreement which outlined how projects will be developed in the Red
River Valley in Minnesota. That agreement states that the districts within the basin will
attempt to balance each project design with Flood Damage Reduction (FDR) benefits and Natural Resource Enhancements (NRE). Part ofthat process requires that each district establish a Project Team for each project containing members from local, regional, state and federal agencies along with environmental organizations and local landowners.
