Portions of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties have been designated as the Straight River Groundwater Management Area.
This designation allows a more comprehensive and focused approach to ensuring that groundwater supplies remain adequate to meet human needs, while protecting lakes, streams and wetlands.
The proposed plan will guide the DNR's efforts to manage groundwater appropriations sustainability in this area over the next five years.
Comments on the Straight River GWMA Draft Plan will be accepted through Thursday, January 7, 2016.
