Project Overview

The goal of this project is to perform water quality monitoring in order to accomplish MPCA’s Intensive Watershed Monitoring (IWM) plan in preparation for development of Watershed Restoration and Protection (WRAP) monitoring efforts. The monitoring sites are located in Houston, Fillmore and Mower counties in southeast Minnesota. This project will provide intensive stream monitoring for Pine Creek in the La Crescent watershed, Winnebago and Crooked Creek in the Reno watershed, Bear, Pine and the Upper Iowa in the Upper Iowa watershed. Project goals are to determine overall health of the water resources, to identify impaired waters, and to identify those waters in need of additional protection to prevent future impairments through the monitoring process.
