Bois de Sioux River

Land use within the watershed is largely agricultural, accounting for nearly 83% of the overall watershed acres. Development pressure is moderate in most areas, with occasional farms being parceled out for development, recreation or country homes. Precipitation in the watershed ranges from 21 to 23 inches annually. Above-normal amounts of precipitation in the late fall of the year or from May to October periodically produce snow-melt and summer floods.
