Area II River Basin Projects Inc.
Area II, formed in 1978 as a non-profit organization, works to alleviate the recurrent flood problems which plague this area of southwestern Minnesota.
This organization is recognized as a leader in flood damage reduction by the installation of dams/reservoirs and road retentions.
Member counties include:
Area II assists the member counties in the engineering design, hydrologic and hydraulic modeling, construction, and finance of flood control projects. Assistance has also involved water management endeavors, river monitoring, and lake and wetland restoration projects.
Due to the unique landforms of this area, particularly the Coteau de Prairies (otherwise known as the Buffalo Ridge), Area II receives a cost-share rate of 75% state funding and 25% local funding for office administration and project implementation. Oversight of this grant-in-aid program is provided by the Minnesota Board of Water & Soil Resources.
