Buffalo-Red Rivers Watershed District Surface Water Assessment Grant (SWAG)
This Surface Water Assessment Grant (SWAG) project is intended to supplement the 2019-2020 Intensive Watershed Monitoring (IWM) process for the Buffalo and Upper Red River of the North watersheds. Nine sites will provide water chemistry and river eutrophication data to the IWM. Monitoring sites were requested by the Buffalo - Red River Watershed District (BRRWD) and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA). In addition to the 10x water chemistry and biological monitoring sites selected by the MPCA for the IWM process, these additional sites will provide valuable data on the impact of BRRWD projects on impaired waters as well as effluents from National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) sites in the watersheds.
