Project Overview

Four stream segments, totaling over 100 miles, are impaired in the Little Fork River for Total Suspended Solids (TSS). This study will provide local partners with project options for reducing sediment in the Little Fork Watershed. Through the use of sediment fingerprinting determinations can be made if the sediment is from in (or near) channel, or the watershed and identify what sub-watershed the sediment is coming originating. Phase 1 will include: background and existing data collection, field reconnaissance, establishing a sampling network, site selection for passive sediment samplers, and compilation of existing data including geographic information system (GIS) data sets.
