    Ron Fuller, Chairman of the Zumbro Watershed Partnership (ZWP) recently announced that Lawrence Svien has accepted and will be assuming the position of Executive Director.   As director, Svien will supervise a grant project to identify “erosion hot spots” in the watershed, among other projects to clean and protect the Zumbro River.

    Before coming to the ZWP, Svien worked for the U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service as regional staff support and as the District Conservationist in Wabasha County. 

    “Svien’s experience working with farmers and other landowners to implement soil and water conservation projects will be critical as we work to implement projects to keep the Zumbro River cleaner and safer for today and tomorrow,” said Fuller. 

    Former Watershed Coordinator Lisa Eadens is returning to Denver, Colorado.

     

    The Zumbro Watershed Partnership is a non-profit organization comprised of local citizens and organizations whose common goal is to protect and improve the waters of the Zumbro River and its tributaries.  For more information about the ZWP and its programs, contact ZWP Education Coordinator Kevin Strauss at 507-993-3411 or at education@zumbrowatershed.org.

    The ZWP recently received a two-year grant from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency to monitor chemical and physical attributes of 13 stream reaches across the Zumbro Watershed. The monitoring will begin this May. We are looking for volunteers to help take samples, field measurements and record data. If you are interested, please contact Lisa at admin@zumbrowatershed.org.
