Walnut Creek Watershed Public Presentations

The Walnut Creek Watershed is one of the most quickly urbanizing watersheds in Iowa, encompassing 52,643 acres in Dallas and Polk County. About 60% of the watershed’s land area falls within the incorporated boundaries of Dallas Center, Clive, West Des Moines, Urbandale, Windsor Heights, Grimes and Waukee.  Here’s a recent news article .


We’re teaming with Snyder & Associates, Des Moines MPO, and Polk County Soil and Water Conservation District to assist communities in understanding their issues and options where water quality is concerned. The comprehensive plan-in-progress by the Walnut Creek Watershed Management Authority addresses the environmental concerns related to improving water quality and reducing flooding in the 82-square-mile watershed.
