Zumbro & Friends Flood Mitigation Town Hall Meetings
Zumbro & Friends is a coalition of watershed and community groups working to reduce or eliminate destructive flooding in the Zumbro Watershed. To better understand how and where flooding happens in the watershed, the group has been working with Dr. Steve Druschel from Minnesota State University Mankato to develop a watershed model. These public meetings will give residents a chance to learn about the model and how it can help guide flood mitigation planning and projects in the future.
