Project Overview

This project will define the major factors causing harm to fish and other river and stream life within the Nemadji watershed. Stressor identification is a formal and rigorous process to identify these factors, explain the linkages between the results of biological monitoring and water quality assessments, and organize this information into a structure of scientific evidence that supports the conclusions of the process. Stressor identification is a component of the Watershed Restoration and protection (WRAP) approach. The Nemadji watershed will be on target for completion of TMDLs and a full watershed wide (WRAP) report by 2015.
