Project Overview

The MPCA, in partnership with the Vermillion River Watershed Joint Powers Organization, contracted with Wenck Associates, Inc., to develop the Stressor Identification (SID) Report; and develop the necessary models for the Vermillion River Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategies (WRAPS) as part of Phase I. The final Vermillion River Watershed SID report discusses all of the analysis that was done in the watershed to identify the primary stressors causing the fish and macroinvertebrate impairments in the watershed. Based on the findings of the SID report, the VRWJPO and the MPCA will develop any necessary Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs), and identify strategies that will correct the problems to Restore or Protect the Fish and Macroinvertebrate communities in the Vermillion River Watershed as part of Phase II of the project.
