BUT EVERYONE CAN DO SOMETHING TO REDUCE CLIMATE IMPACTS
The Bassett Creek Watershed Management Commission was formed in the late 1960s when nine cities in the watershed came together to work on flooding problems. In fact, the commission was originally named the Bassett Creek Flood Control Commission. Despite the award-winning engineering work and collaborative efforts, flooding remains a concern today. And since Minnesota’s climate is becoming warmer and wetter, flooding will likely remain an issue well into the future. This article is the first in a series about the connections between a wetter climate, our water resources, and how you can help.
