Flood Damage Reduction Work Group (FDRWG)
Minnesota’s Red River Basin Flood Damage Reduction Work Group (FDRWG) meets regularly to administer a 1998 Mediation Agreement on flood damage reduction and natural resource enhancement. Co-Chaired by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and Red River Basin Watershed Management Board (RRWMB), the FDRWG provides guidance, funding and oversight to watershed districts and their project teams for collaborative development of flood resiliency projects in Minnesota’s portion of the Red River Basin. The FDRWG also provides recommendations for funding these projects from bond funds administered statewide by DNR’s Flood Hazard Mitigation program.
