Roseau Soil and Water Conservation District FY15 Surface Water Assessment Grant (SWAG)
The Roseau River Watershed Assessment will include the waters of the Roseau River, Sprague Creek, Hay Creek and Hayes Lake. All of the monitoring sites, except one, are located in Roseau County, with the exception being located in Kittson County. This assessment focuses on collection of water chemistry and field parameters at one site on Hayes Lake and seven key sites on the Roseau River, which have been identified by MPCA. These sites are located in the lower reaches of each surface water system. This effort put forth by the Roseau SWCD and MPCA will utilize experience staff to obtain comprehensive data of surface waters. The project will support the biological data collected by MPCA and will establish whether these surface waters meet state and federal standards.
