The Northeast Glacial Lakes Watershed Improvement and Protection Project is a cooperative venture between Day, Grant, Marshall and Roberts County Conservation Districts to protect and improve the water quality of northeast South Dakota lakes,  reservoirs, streams and rivers.  This web site will provide information to agricultural landowners and producers on cost share programs available to implement best management practices designed to improve water quality, livestock and cropland production plus a wealth of information useful for lakeshore property owners, recreational users and the general public.
