Project Overview

This project will develop draft Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) studies addressing seven impaired lakes in the Lower Minnesota River Watershed (Fish, Pike, O’Dowd, Thole, Schneider, Titlow and Cleary Lakes). TMDLs will describe the impairment in each lake and water quality targets, and will include a phosphorus source assessment, a lake response model and supporting report components that document assumptions and methodologies, and a TMDL equation with completed load allocations, wasteload allocations, and margin of safety for each impairment. This project will provide information and analysis to inform the future development of targeted implementation strategies.
