The Stevens SWCD has adopted the County Local Water Management Plan as it’s comprehensive plan. The county recently extended the existing water plan (see below) indefinitely, because of the pending implementation of the One Watershed One Plan system, which will develop management plans based upon major watersheds instead of along county boundaries.
