Project Overview

This project will conduct the second round of Intensive Watershed Monitoring (IWM) for the Mississippi River St. Cloud watershed. Partnering organizations intend to complete sampling of lakes and streams following the protocols and guidance set forth by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA). Watershed partners include Benton Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD), Clearwater Watershed District, Sherburne SWCD, Stearns SWCD, Stearns County staff, and Wright SWCD. Sampling will take place in 2019 and 2020 on lake and stream sites prioritized by MPCA and approved by local partners. It is anticipated the data collected through this effort will assist state and local conservation staff in determining applicable priorities and goals for watershed restoration and protection efforts.
