Mower County's Water Plan has been updated to use the Watershed approach. Mower County is covered by one of two different One Watershed One Plan (1W1P) programs: Cedar-Wapsi 1W1P and managed through cooperation with Mower SWCD
Mower County no longer conducts private water testing. A test kit can be obtained from Austin Utilities (1908 4th St NE - Austin) or from Mower SWCD (1408 21st Ave NW - Austin); there is no charge for the kit, which includes instructions for sampling your water and a form to complete the testing you'd like ordered. Fees are paid directly to the testing lab by the Owner.
