SWAG 10- Bigfork River Target Watershed Assessment – Itasca SWCD
This project will collect water chemistry and field parameters at the Popple River, Bowstring River, Big Fork River, Rice River, Caribou Lake and Eagle lake. It will also support the biological assessments being completed by MPCA staff for this Target Watershed Assessment. This project is a collaborative effort with MPCA, 3 SWCDs, and the well established Bigfork River Watch Program. This project is a collaborative effort with Lake of the Woods and Koochiching County SWCDs because the Big Fork Watershed encompasses both Itasca and Koochiching Counties. Lake of the Woods SWCD will be providing guidance to Koochiching SWCD to develop a surface water monitoring program through oversight and training.
