Mississippi River Grand Rapids Watershed Restoration & Protection Strategy (WRAPS) - Phase II
This project will focus on creating a watershed identity, monitoring & assessment, stressor ID assistance, Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) report development, Watershed Restoration & Protection Strategy (WRAPS) report development, watershed prioritization and targeting, and the continuation of the Civic Engagement components of the project. Currently, this watershed has seven listed conventional impairments (Lake Eutrophication); however, it is possible that additional stream impairments (up to four) may be identified during the IWM process. Additional impairments identified later, beyond those previously mentioned, will be a priority in the WRAPS and more thoroughly addressed in cycle II of the intensive watershed monitoring cycle (2025). Through the IWM process, this will be the first time this watershed will be fully monitored for biological health indicators.
