Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. A refined watershed model with improved accuracy for assessing impairment issues. 2. Model applications that assess various management scenarios, the results of which will be used by decision-makers, including agency staff and stakeholders, to educate

Project Overview

The Zumbro River watershed HSPF model will be refined to include recent data and information as well as evaluate various management scenarios to inform the most effective actions for reducing sediment and nutrient loading and improving water quality. Specifically, to provide the foundation for the Lake Zumbro Phosphorus Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL).
