Measurable Outcome(s)

Sampling of 20 lakes and trend analysis was completed as proposed.

Project Overview

Beltrami County will be updating their water plan in 2017. This plan will be watershed protection oriented and will utilize all available data and maps in order to best protect our water resources. In 2012, Beltrami County completed screening on 19 of our large lakes with heavy land use development. What we found was that none of the lakes had enough chemical data for a trend analysis. Since that time, we have been sampling a large number of lakes for water quality and now have the data available for trend analysis on those lakes and would like to update our lake reports and add 20 additional lakes to our list of lakes with in-depth reports completed.
