The 2020 Water Resources Management Plan is a project sponsored by the Prior Lake-Spring Lake Watershed District and the City of Prior Lake, in collaboration with Spring Lake Township, that updates the watershed’s model, reviews flood-related issues and projects, identifies potential flood reduction strategies, and develops an implementation plan. The project began in Spring 2018 and will go through Fall 2019. There is a public outreach component which includes community-wide meetings and more targeted meetings with elected and appointed officials and key community leaders .
