2010-2020 Clearwater County Comprehensive Local Water Management Plan. (2016).

Priority water resource concerns were identified and assessed for this 10-year plan that covers the entire Clay County. The 2016 update is an amendment to the 2010 plan. Only a very small portion of the county is within the Otter Tail River Watershed, as shown on page 11. The Priority Concerns are divided into surface water quality protection and enhancement, drinking water source protection, exotic and invasive species management, and land use impacts on water quality. It includes topics such as water quality monitoring, buffer implementation, septic system upgrades, agricultural BMPs and more. An Implementation Schedule, with a 2016 amendment, is included to identify specific actions, partners, the amount of time, and money those actions may require.

Buffalo-Red River Watershed District Revised Watershed Management Plan. (June, 2010). Prepared by Houston Engineering for the Buffalo-Red Watershed District.

This update to a ten-year plan identifies priority concerns, old and new for the watershed district. It includes a thorough background of the watershed before discussing resource concerns. Buffalo/Red River Watershed District gained jurisdiction of the Lower Otter Tail River in 2012, so it is not included in their current Watersed Management Plan. It will be included in future planning efforts, such as One Watershed, One Plan (1W1P). Existing issues include education, erosion and sediment control, flood damage reduction, and water quality. Emerging issues include impaired waters, wetland regulations, groundwater, and shoreland management. Warning: this document is very large and may take a long time to download.
