Project Overview

The project will include lake monitoring on seventeen lakes found in the Mississippi River - Brainerd watershed in East Central Crow Wing County (CWC). The project will be conducted in an effort to gain data on these data-deficient lakes. One of the goals of the CWC Local Comprehensive Water Plan (CWP) is to establish a countywide Comprehensive Monitoring Plan (CMP). Surface water assessment monitoring will enable state 303(d) and 305(b) assessments and provide a better understanding of these lakes. The lake data will help local government units prioritize and implement water quality protection in CWC.
The project also includes four Mississippi River - Brainerd watershed stream sites that are projected to be sampled 2016-2017.
