The Lower Mississippi River Watershed Management Organization (LMRWMO) Watershed Management Plan sets the vision and guidelines for managing surface waters within the boundaries of the LMRWMO. The Plan provides data and other background information, outlines the applicable regulations, assesses watershed-wide and resource-specific issues, sets goals and policies for the LMRWMO and its members, and lists implementation tasks to achieve the goals.
