Project Overview

This project involves monitoring three data deficient lakes in the Crow Wing River Watershed and one stream site at the inlet to White Earth Lake. The data deficient lakes were on the MPCA Targeted watershed list. After getting the required assessment dataset for these lakes, all targeted lakes in Becker County will be completed for this assessment cycle. The stream site is a site that the White Earth Lake Association and the Becker Coalition of Lake Associations (COLA) will monitor. It is the inlet to White Earth Lake. This project will complete a lake data set for 303(d) and Aquatic Recreation use assessments in Becker County by monitoring total phosphorus, chlorophyll-a and Secchi depth on 3 lakes and evaluate the stream inlet to White Earth Lake.
