Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

In FY16 the DNR will collaborate with the Army Corps of Engineers and other partners of the Minnesota River Integrated Watershed Study to complete fine-scale modeling and translate products into guidance for selecting best management practices at the basin scale. We will complete model scenarios for Shakopee Creek case studies and start developing “scaling” rules to help translate field-research findings on BMP effectiveness into decision-support guidance for restoration and protection efforts throughout the Minnesota River Basin.

We will continue the Discovery Farms research by further developing the field-scale GSSHA models of selected research plots using data collected during edge of field monitoring. The model format for Discovery Farms data is designed to help the Minnesota Agricultural Water Resource Center evaluate how well BMPs work over a wider range of climatic conditions compared to the actual period the practices were monitored.

We will also support a Cedar River Watershed District (CRWD) watershed restoration initiative by refining an existing GSSHA model for Dobbins Creek to evaluate one or more BMP implementation strategies identified by the CRWD.

We will continue to work with MPCA’s HSPF model on the St. Louis River Watershed. We will adapt the Swedish RIM “RIM” model or “Riparian Profile Flow-Concentration Model ” for use with HSPF to model a number of parameters in the St. Louis River (dissolved organic carbon total mercury methylmercury iron and sulfate concentrations). We will incorporate an extensive set of chemical and flow data collected in 2013 by the DNR into the model. This involves extending MPCA’s initial hydrologic calibration from 2012 to 2014

Measurable Outcome(s)

In FY16 the DNR used fine-scale GSSHA modeling results to support several projects and partnerships to improve the selection placement and design of agricultural best management practices (BMPs) in southern Minnesota. Specifically we:
-Continued collaborating with the Army Corps of Engineers and other Minnesota River Integrated Watershed Study partners to complete fine-scale modeling in the Shakopee and Seven-Mile Creek subwatersheds and develop products to guide the selection of BMPs at the basin scale.
-Developed and delivered modeling results to the Chippewa River Board and stakeholders to guide planning efforts to reestablish shallow lakes that were previously drained.
-Assembled a video for the Smithsonian WaterWays Exhibit showing how hydrologic models can help guide management decisions to protect important recreational lakes in the Shakopee Creek system.
-Completed models for two Discovery Farm sites that will be used by the Minnesota Agricultural Water Resource Center and partnering farmers. The models indicate that changes in soil organic matter content and modifications to tile drainage practices will reduce runoff and soil erosion and increase soil water availability.
-Completed three models at different scales for the Dobbins Creek Watershed to help the Cedar River Watershed District decide which BMPs to implement as part of the Minnesota Board of Water & Soil Resources (BWSR)’s Targeted Watershed Grant Program.
-Continued providing technical expertise to drainage-related technical and policy workgroups and issues in various forums.

Staff in the DNR Division of Lands & Minerals collaborated with MPCA staff to write a peer-reviewed paper published in the Journal of Environmental Management about the St. Louis River research described in the proposed outcomes above for FY16.

Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

In FY15 the DNR will collaborate with the Army Corps of Engineers and other Minnesota River Integrated Watershed Study partners to complete fine-scale modeling and translate products into best management practice (BMP) guidance at the basin scale. Staff will complete model scenarios for Shakopee Creek case studies and start developing “scaling” rules to help translate field-research findings on BMP effectiveness into decision-support guidance for restoration and protection efforts throughout the Minnesota River Basin.

In coordination with the MN Agricultural Water Resource Center and MN Department of Agriculture modelers will aid Discovery Farms research by developing field-scale GSSHA models of selected research plots to help evaluate BMP effectiveness and reduce uncertainty in interpreting the monitored data. A model format for Discovery Farms data will help evaluate BMP effectiveness over a wider range of climatic conditions than occurred during the monitoring period and improve site-to-site comparisons.

Staff will also support a Cedar River Watershed District (CRWD) watershed restoration initiative by refining an existing GSSHA model for Dobbins Creek to incorporate drainage tile so the effects of tile drainage practices can be accurately evaluated together with other BMPs. The results will help refine BMPs recommendations.

The DNR will continue collaborating with soil scientists to understand and model soil health management to support drainage and water quality goals. Staff will compile soil health research from multiple sources to ensure the best science is used to explain how soil characteristics change in response to changing tillage practices and other BMPs and accurately incorporate soil physics into reliable model parameters.

Staff will continue to coordinate with the Drainage Work Group and provide technical support for the Drainage Management Team as they review Minnesota’s drainage policies and code.

Measurable Outcome(s)

In FY15 the DNR continued to work with the Army Corps of Engineers and other Minnesota River Integrated Watershed Study (MRIWS) partners. The goal is to improve the predictions these models make about the effectiveness of potential watershed restoration activities.

We developed a tool that will help combine land use land cover and crop management practices with soil type in the model which will estimate differences in water flow as these relationships change.

Maps showing locations for targeted BMPs that will significantly reduce sediment loading are being used by local SWCDs to work with individual landowners. The use of detailed maps at a fine scale in this targeting exercise demonstrates the value of the GSSHA modeling in identifying the effectiveness of BMP implementation at both field and watershed scales.

We worked with the Discovery Farms research team to develop a field-scale GSSHA model based on actual monitoring data. The model gives a detailed summary of water balance with and without a pattern tile drainage system for both corn and soybean rotations helping evaluate BMP effectiveness and interpret monitoring data in a pattern tiled field.

The DNR’s mining hydrologists worked with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency to enhance their HSPF (Hydrologic Simulation Program Fortran) model for the St. Louis River watershed by: 1) improving the mining discharge information in the model and; 2) developing user input files that incorporate “chemical tracers” to mine waters so that impacts from mining and other activities can be evaluated more quickly and accurately. This work will help better identify sources of pollution problems make mine permitting decisions and target restoration plans.

Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

In FY14 the DNR watershed modeling team will continue its work with the Cannon River stakeholders and use the modeling experience developed for the Maple Creek Subwatershed to evaluate how to target and select BMPs for the adjacent Turtle Creek Subwatershed.

The DNR watershed modeling team will complete the Shakopee Creek case studies (JD 27 and JD29) as well as third subwatershed (Huse Creek) which will serve as a reference watershed. The DNR will combine the results of the Shakopee Creek case studies with those of the Army COE modelers (who are modeling 7-Mile Creek) to address historical impacts of wetland loss and drainage in the Minnesota River Basin and to help develop a watershed strategy to address TMDL goals.

The DNR’s Drainage Engineer will continue to coordinate with the Drainage Work Group on drainage policy and reshaping state drainage code. The modeling team will work cooperatively with University of Minnesota researchers and others to increase our understanding on how BMPs change soil properties that are used in models to interpret hydrologic response. The modeling team will also cooperate with University of Minnesota researchers on a pilot project that will help evaluate how drainage alters the value of land. This project may lead to improvements in determining the benefits and impacts from drainage and who should pay for maintenance of drainage systems and drainage system improvements that may benefit others than the landowners where the improvements are made.

Measurable Outcome(s)

In FY14 the DNR continued to work with the Army Corps Of Engineers and other partners involved in the Minnesota River Integrated Watershed Study (MRIWS). DNR’s three modeling case studies in the Shakopee Creek watershed were not completed. Instead effort was focused on stakeholder meetings and MRIWS team meetings to identify the specific series of landscape conditions (model scenarios) that need to be evaluated. Because improved soil health management will be a critical component of water restoration and protection strategies existing research on soil physics was carefully reviewed to insure that our models accurately represent those processes.

Significant effort was also invested in FY14 to improve how climate and rainfall data are incorporated into our models. Climatic parameters are key drivers of how water (and pollutants) moves across and through landscapes. Accurately incorporating this information is critical if our modeling efforts are going to simulate physical processes in the landscape and provide reliable decision-support guidance. A guidance document on radar precipitation estimation was prepared.

The DNR’s Drainage Engineer continued to provide expert technical input into the effort being led by the Board of Water and Soil Resources to review Minnesota’s drainage policy and code. Input was provided to both the Drainage Work Group (DWG) and the Drainage Management Team (DMT).

The DNR continued to participate on the Interagency Clean Water Research Sub-Team led that prioritizes and guides research studies paid for by the clean water fund. These studies are designed to improve understanding of BMP effectiveness and develop guidance for targeting and installation of these beneficial practices.

The Cannon River/Straight River GSSHA pilot study with the MPCA and Cannon River stakeholders is on hold after the lead modeler left state service.

Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

In FY13 the DNR watershed modeling team will work with the Cannon River stakeholders to complete the Straight River prioritization of Management Zones (PMZs) in support of TMDL implementation strategies. A report summarizing this effort will be completed.

The Shakopee Creek case studies will be completed to address impacts of wetland loss and drainage impacts with assessments reflecting historic land use changes. Coordination with the MRIWS team will help identify additional watershed assessment needs to begin the development of a strategy for targeting BMPs that will support the framework for a Decision Support System (DSS). A draft report of modeling outcomes will be prepared.

CW Modeling Team will work with the States’ CW team to coordinate other critical modeling needs that can be initiated in FY13. The CW Drainage Engineer will continue to coordinate with the DWG and others doing drainage research to identify critical gaps in this research.

Measurable Outcome(s)

In FY13 the DNR watershed modeling team worked with stakeholders in the Cannon River watershed to target and prioritize the placement of best management practices (BMPs) in the Maple Creek Subwatershed (part of the Straight River watershed). The analysis predicted that a combination of the most effective BMPs would reduce suspended sediment by up to 40% and reduce peak storm flows by up to 6% if implemented at realistic landowner adoption rates. The results provided information based on the specific characteristics of the Maple Creek subwatershed on how to target the types and locations of BMPs to maximize improvements in runoff quality and quantity. A draft report summarizing this effort was completed and is available to the partners for their inclusion in the development prioritized and targeted implementation activities.
The Shakopee Creek case studies were not completed as scheduled in FY13 because the overall project is behind schedule due to reduced levels of federal funding. DNR’s watershed modeling team began establishing a process for incorporating radar derived precipitation estimates into the model so the model better represents that local rainfall conditions resulting in a more accurately calibrated model.

DNR’s Drainage Engineer continues to coordinate with the Drainage Work Group and others doing drainage research to identify critical gaps in our knowledge and decision-support capacity. Coordination with the team developing the Agricultural Certification Pilot in Minnesota identified opportunities for using the GSSHA model to help document the effectiveness of that program to deliver desired outcomes and progress toward meeting TMDL goals.

Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

In FY12 DNR hydrologists will apply the "Gridded Subsurface Surface Hydrologic Analysis" (GSSHA) model to evaluate BMP alternatives for clean water restoration and protection studies and will participate in Drainage Work Group and Drainage Management Team meetings to help identify research needs and shortcomings in outdated State Drainage Code language
Modeling:
* Calibrate Shakopee Creek wetland and lake restoration GSSHA models to support restoration and BMP prioritization efforts in Chippewa River Basin.
* Finalize Straight River (Cannon River Watershed) GSSHA Model Calibrations for TSS and work with CRWP on Prioritizing Management Zones in Straight River Watershed in support of TMDL implementation.

Measurable Outcome(s)

In FY12 DNR watershed modelers updated data inputs for GSSHA models in Shakopee Creek and the Straight River to reflect more precise watershed characteristics now available with the release of detailed LiDAR digital terrain data. This improvement will result in improved modeling of BMP alternatives.

Support for the Straight River TMDL implementation is under way. The Turtle Creek model has been calibrated and preliminary BMP targeting in the Maple Creek Watershed is being coordinated with our partners in the Cannon River Watershed.

Work continues on the Minnesota River Integrated Watershed Study (MRIWS). Watershed modelers met to prioritize where case studies will be performed and to determine what issues are critical outcomes of these case studies. Work continues with the stakeholders in Shakopee Creek to determine critical outcomes from this case study and how this information will support the MRIWS. Desired outcomes will include wetland restoration benefits and impacts of lost storage due to drainage of shallow lakes.

The Clean Water Drainage Engineer attended all Drainage Work Group (DWG) meetings in addition to supporting the CW research committee in reviewing grant applications for BWSR and MDA CW research.

Project Overview

The DNR provides technical support regarding the causes of and solutions to drainage impacts, actively engaging with other Minnesota modelers and scientists working on issues related to altered hydrology. We use state-of-the-art models to look at cumulative impacts of drainage and land-use practices and determine the benefits of site-specific best management practices. This involves collaboration with multiple partners and at multiple scales. For example, we are working with Mower County SWCD on a model to track how implementation projects are moving the county towards its flood and nutrient reduction goals. We have also partnered with Discovery Farms Minnesota and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture to help interpret and extend on-farm water quality monitoring data.

About the Issue

Understanding the impacts of land use on drainage is critical to our ability to protect and restore clean water. Since European settlement, native landscapes - which allow water to filter through healthy vegetation and soils to replenish aquifers - have been replaced by agriculture and urban development with constructed drainage systems designed to move water off the land as quickly as possible. These alterations to the way water flows across the land as well as practices that reduce the capacity for soils to hold water contribute to widespread erosion and habitat loss, as well as increased sediment loading, excess nutrients, bacteria, and other pollution reaching Minnesota's lakes, streams, rivers, and wetlands.
