Project Overview

This project will focus on collecting stream water quality data. Citizen volunteers and SWCD staff will complete water quality monitoring on two targeted stream sites in the watershed and eight additional sites including prospective MPCA biological assessment sites and DNR-Fisheries priority sites. This project will expand citizen participation into the assessment of streams in the watershed which are not included in the current TMDL study and expand data collection to a wider set of parameters. The goal of this project is to complete a water quality data set for 303(d) assessment for Aquatic Life of streams in the Nemadji River watershed while expanding landowner involvement through volunteer monitoring opportunities and water quality awareness.
