Goodhue SWCD Surface Water Assessment Grant (SWAG)
This monitoring effort will focus on collecting chemistry and field data information from six sample locations on Hay Creek, Wells Creek, Bullard Creek and Gilbert Creek in Goodhue County and Miller Creek in Wabasha County within the Mississippi River-Lake Pepin Watershed (MRLP). These streams are typically cold water streams which outlet directly to the Mississippi River or Lake Pepin. This monitoring effort is to assist with the 10-year watershed-monitoring schedule that the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has placed on major watersheds across the State. The Goodhue SWCD has assisted with the first round of monitoring in this watershed ten years ago as well as the development of the Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) document in 2015.
