The Chippewa River Watershed Project is a non-regulatory, cooperative partnership and citizen based approach focused on improving water quality and watershed life in the Chippewa River and its tributaries. The CRWP is currently funded with state Clean Water Partnership Grants, Federal 319 Grant Dollars, Clean Water Fund money, and local water plan contributions. The CRWP also relies heavily on the cooperation and commitment of our partners and volunteerism of watershed residents.
