Kanabec SWCD Surface Water Assessment Grant (SWAG)
This project encompasses surface water quality sampling within the Snake River Watershed over a period of two years (2017-18). This is the cycle II monitoring as follow-up to the original Snake River Watershed monitoring 10 years ago as part of the Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy Report (WRAPS). This project shall provide follow-up data on the waters in the Snake River Watershed in regards to changes in water quality over this 10-year cycle. The current sampling project will entail sampling 5 lakes and 11 stream sites. The Kanabec SWCD staff will take the lead in managing this project using staff and volunteers to collect the samples between May and September of 2017 and 2018. Volunteers will be sought and utilized for the lake sampling.
