Minnesota River - Yellow Medicine River Watershed

Minnesota's Major Watershed Projects

The Minnesota River - Yellow Medicine River watershed (1,306,502 acres) has traditionally been managed as two separate watersheds, the Hawk Creek watershed to the north of the Minnesota River and the Yellow Medicine River watershed to the south of the Minnesota River. Both waterways enter the Minnesota River downstream of Granite Falls.
