Welcome to the Prior Lake-Spring Lake Watershed District
Our mission is to manage and preserve the water resources of the Prior Lake-Spring Lake Watershed District to the best of our ability using input from our communities, sound engineering practices, and our ability to efficiently fund beneficial projects which transcend political jurisdictions.
In the summer of 2023, our PLSLWD interns produced a video that explains the history of the Watershed, how water runs through the Watershed, and what our staff does to maintain the Watershed’s health. Click here to view “Welcome to the Watershed”
The PLSLWD office (located in the lower level of City Hall) is open Monday-Friday 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM. If you need to drop something office in our office and the front window gate is down, feel free to drop your items at the front desk of City Hall.
The District’s rules were adopted on May 10, 2022 and became effective on June 1, 2022. Click HERE to download the adopted rules.
The PLSLWD is seeking Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) Members
