Water Resource Districts are created throughout the state of North Dakota to manage, conserve, protect, develop, and control water resources. Each District will be governed by a Water Resource Board, which will manage water uses and water management facilities (including dams) in the district, and set local regulations regarding water use, flooding, and pollution.
