A permit is required for any project in the watershed district that affects the flow of water.

The YMRW District's Advisory Board, consisting of one designated county commissioner, one environmental officer and one SWCD board supervisor of each of Yellow Medicine, Lyon and Lincoln Counties, assisted the board in the revision of the Rules and Regulations.The advisory board meets once each year, at the advisory board hearing, usually held in August of each year.
