Soil and Water Conservation District Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) Support in the Lake Superior Basin
This project will augment data collection efforts for the Lake Superior South, Cloquet, St. Louis River, and Duluth Urban Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) projects. Activities include: attaining datasets for watershed stressors and geomorphic conditions, water quality gap monitoring, and civic engagement. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has been collaborating with the South St. Louis Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) to complete WRAPS related technical and civic engagement work in the Lake Superior basin for the past five years. The goal of this collaboration is to build the SWCD's long-term capacity and ensure that they will be able to continue to serve as partners in achieving the goals of the WRAPS.
