Project Overview
The goal of this workplan is to define the major factors causing harm to fish and other river and stream life within the Nemadji Watershed. The work will complete the strength of evidence tables, will explain the linkages between biological monitoring results and water quality assessments, and will organize this information into a scientific evidence structure that supports the conclusions of the overall process. Multiple lines of evidence are reviewed and evaluated to produce a final evaluative report. This work order, the second of two, begins in 2013 and will be completed in year 2014. With this work completed, the Nemadji watershed will be on target for completion of TMDLs and a full watershed wide (WRAPS) report in 2015.
