Project Overview

This project continues the total maximum daily load (TMDL) and watershed restoration and protection strategies (WRAPS) process for the Duluth Metropolitan Area (DMA).  The DMA is defined by water, sitting at the juncture of Lake Superior and the St. Louis River Estuary, and surrounded by semi-mountainous terrain. The project serves as a bridge into the next phase of restoration and protection identified by the Duluth Urban Stream TMDLs and WRAPS. In the first phase of community engagement, a collaborating organization was formed to define a framework for the DMA communities. Communities participating in this Duluth Urban Watershed Advisory Committee (DUWAC) include the cities of Duluth, Hermantown, Proctor, and Rice Lake; and the townships of Midway, Lakewood, Gnesen, Normanna, and Thomson; and St. Louis County.
