Project Overview

The project goal is to assist the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) with meeting the objectives of the Watershed Pollutant Load Monitoring Network (WPLMN). This will be accomplished by providing assistance in 2016 through 2019 to collect water samples, field data, and observations for the Big Fork River near Bigfork at MN6 in Itasca County, and the Big Fork River near Craigsville at MN6 in Koochiching County. Itasca Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) has completed FLUX32 training through MPCA and will assist with pollutant load calculations for the Big Fork River site near Bigfork at MN6 and the Big Fork River site near Craigsville at MN6 as needed.
