Project Overview

This project will collect water quality data in the St. Louis River watershed as part of the 10-year Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) cycle for Minnesota waters. South St. Louis Soil and Water Conservation District (SSLSWCD) staff will conduct all monitoring in accordance with Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) Intensive Watershed Monitoring (IWM) standard operating procedures. The SSLSSWCD has extensive experience in stream sampling techniques, including dissolved oxygen, pH, specific conductance, temperature, total suspended solids, nutrients, E. coli, metals, and isotope sampling in the St. Louis, Cloquet, Lake Superior North and Lake Superior South watersheds in conjunction with MPCA Stressor Identification staff.
