Project Overview

The purpose of this work is to develop Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs; a federal clean Water Act requirement) for streams and lakes in the Kettle River and Upper St. Croix watersheds. This and other technical information will be used to develop a separate report called a Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) report. This report summarizes the 1) water quality and aquatic biological monitoring completed and how these data compare to state water quality standards, 2) sources of pollutants and stressors to aquatic biology, 3) TMDL results, 4) geographic information for targeting implementation efforts and 5) strategies to restore impaired waters and protect unimpaired waters.
