Wetland Management Plan

Blue Earth County is coordinating development of a local plan to maintain and improve the quality, quantity and biological diversity of wetlands throughout the County.

The Comprehensive Wetland Protection and Management Plan for Blue Earth County will use locally-determined, scientifically-based methods to:
  1. Identify and protect high priority public value wetlands,
  2. Identify and prioritize strategic selection of wetland replacement and restoration sites based on local public values, and
  3. Allow flexibility for Blue Earth County and the City of Mankato to administer the Wetland Conservation Act to protect priority wetlands and encourage restoration of wetlands in priority areas.
