The Water Level Management Regional Coordinating Committee tasked an ad hoc group to employ structured decision making (SDM) practices to reach partnership agreement around a set of basic recommendations as to when, where, and why WLM should be used as an ecosystem restoration tool in the UMRS. Between April 2021 and August 2021, the Upper Mississippi River Basin Association (UMRBA; www.umrba.org) hosted a series of six virtual meetings for the ad hoc group to evaluate the issues, explore agency perspectives, and develop shared recommendations for WLM implementation. This report describes the process and outcomes of the SDM exercise.
