Project Overview

The goals of project are to: 1) engage stakeholders and the public in watershed management activities; 2) conduct microbial source tracking to determine the source(s) of E. coli in E.coli-impaired streams; 3) develop Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for impaired lakes and streams requiring TMDL development; 4) develop the Otter Tail River Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) report, which identifies restoration and protection strategies for lakes and streams through various analyses; and 5) conduct project management and communication activities necessary to ensure project success. Stakeholder involvement and public participation will be a focus throughout the project. The project provides an opportunity to assess and leverage the capacity of the local community to engage in watershed management and to adopt protection and restoration practices.
