NOTICE OF ADOPTED AMENDMENTS TO THE DISTRICT’S RULES EFFECTIVE JULY 22, 2021
Notice is hereby given that the Board of Managers of the Nine Mile Creek Watershed District (NMCWD) adopted revisions to the NMCWD Rules on Wednesday, July 21, 2021. The amended NMCWD Rules are effective for all applications completed on or after July 22, 2021.
Legal authority for the NMCWD’s rules derives from Minnesota Statutes Chapters 103B and 103D. Under Minnesota Statutes § 103D.341, subdivision 1, watershed districts must adopt rules “to accomplish the purposes of [the watershed act] and to implement the powers of the managers.” These purposes include, among others, conservation of water for public uses; controlling erosion and siltation of lakes, streams, and wetlands; and protecting water quality in these bodies. Minn. Stat. § 103D.201, subd. 2. District managers are further authorized for example, to regulate and control the use of water within the watershed district, regulate the use of streams and watercourses to prevent pollution, and regulate the use and development of land under certain conditions. Id. § 103D.335, subds. 10, 16, and 23; § 103B.211, subds. 1.
