Welcome to the Elm Creek Watershed!
The Elm Creek Watershed Management Commission is the regional governmental unit responsible for protecting the water resources of the Elm Creek watershed in northwestern Hennepin County, Minnesota.
The Commission is governed by a seven-member board of representatives (Commissioners) from the member communities: Champlin, Corcoran, Dayton, Maple Grove, Medina, Plymouth, and Rogers.
Maple Grove's Fish Lake is proposed to be removed from the state's list of Impaired Waters due to improved water quality. Congratulations to all the stakeholders who worked together to achieve this goal!
