Lower Cedar Watershed Management Authority Seeks Requests for Proposals

The Lower Cedar Watershed Management Authority (LCWMA) requests proposals from qualified contractors for watershed planning services to develop a comprehensive watershed management plan for the Lower Cedar Watershed.

The Lower Cedar Watershed Management Authority (WMA) has been awarded a $100,000 watershed planning grant from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (Iowa DNR) through the Comprehensive Water Quality Management Planning Grant solicitation. The funding will be used to develop a comprehensive watershed management plan for the Lower Cedar Watershed, which will address stakeholder concerns with water quality, flooding, and degrading habitat quality. The Lower Cedar is an 8-digit Hydrologic Unite Code watershed (07080205) in eastern Iowa encompassing seven counties and twenty-five cities, spanning 703,060 acres. In 2017, concerned stakeholders came together to begin the process of forming a Watershed Management Authority, pursuant to Iowa Code Chapter 466B.22. The Lower Cedar Watershed Management Authority (WMA) was officially formed as a separate legal entity in January 2018, and since then has begun laying the groundwork for watershed plan development.
