Project Overview

This project will dentify critical pathways and areas on the landscape that contribute a disproportionate amount of sediment stressors to selected streams located in LS South and/or LS North HUC 8 watersheds. Unlike other HUC 8 watersheds with one mainstem stream and nested tributaries to the mainstem, LS South and North consist of numerous individual streams flowing to Lake Superior. Each of these streams has a mainstem, tributaries flowing to the mainstem and a surrounding watershed. The selected study streams and their associated watersheds will be evaluated as representative of the larger pool of stream types and conditions of LS South and North streams. This work in turn will help inform management of all streams and associated watersheds in Lake Superior South and North HUC 8 watersheds.
