Project Overview

The goal is to develop the Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) and a public and stakeholder participation process that encourages local involvement in water quality discussions and solutions, identifying impaired waters, developing Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs); and planning, setting priorities, and implementing the WRAPS recommendation to restore impaired waters. Phase II of the WRAPS will consists of developing TMDLs for the impaired reaches as well as developing the final WRAPS document and implementation planning. Phase II builds on the data collected in Phase I and completes necessary allocations as well as target identification. Phase II of the WRAPS will consist of additional data collection or needs remaining from Phase I, as well as beginning the work to identify potential sources of the remaining stream reach impairments; E. coli and fecal coliform bacteria, and the excess nutrient impairment in Alimagnet Lake and East lake.
