The Whetstone River is a tributary of the Minnesota River near Ortonville, MN. The river was diverted into Big Stone Lake in the 1930s to increase the lake’s levels during droughts. The river now flows into the lake just upstream from Big Stone Lake Dam. The Upper Minnesota River Watershed District retained HEI to restore perennial flows to the historic Whetstone channel.
As part of the second round of One Watershed, One Plan (1W1P) efforts, the Thief River Wateshed 1W1P Partnership, made up of several counties and the Red Lake Watershed District, sought a consultant to provide plan writing and facilitation services to develop the Thief River Watershed 1W1P. The Partnership hired HEI to lead the plan’s development.
The North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department wants to create a new day park south of Bismarck along the Missouri River. This park will provide a variety of land- and water-based recreational opportunities for local residents and visitors alike.
