The Chippewa Subdistrict of the MWCD was established in 1960 to manage and maintain the Chippewa Flood Control Project for the purpose of reducing flooding and periods of inundation.

Our goal is to efficiently and effectively manage this flood control system while encouraging the wise use of our watershed and its natural resources.

The construction of the dams and modifications to Chippewa Creek and its tributaries through the Chippewa Watershed Project were funded through a federal program. Funding for the ongoing maintenance of the creek channel, flood control structures, banks and berms comes from an assessment of local land owners in the Chippewa Subdistrict.
