Project Overview

The final outcome of this project will be a chloride management plan which will lay out a strategy for addressing chloride impacts to our surface waters for the 7-county metropolitan area. This chloride management plan will satisfy EPA requirements for impaired waters, address waters not yet listed, and develop a strategy to protect waters that are currently meeting the water quality standards. This management plan will also include implementation activities for reducing chloride to TCMA waters as well as identify high priority areas to target implementation activities. The MPCA and the hired consultants will work with the inter-agency team, a technical advisory committee, a monitoring advisory team, and implementation plan committee and local stakeholders to develop this management plan to ensure that it is supported by our local partners and will result in ownership of the final plan.
