Working with Metropolitan Council Environmental Services, Camp Dresser & McKee (CDM) evaluated the feasibility of using stormwater runoff for irrigation and other purposes that traditionally rely on potable water. Effective implementation of stormwater reuse practices can lower demands on drinking water supplies and reduce impacts from aquifer decline, while simultaneously reducing mass loading of pollutants to surface waters.
This project will complete a guidance document for the construction of Hydrologic Simulation Program FORTRAN (HSPF) watershed models which are intended to support MPCA Watershed programmatic activities. It will also customize and populate a national HSPF parameter database with values from Minnesota HSPF model applications. This enhanced database will expedite the future construction of HSPF models as well as increase the consistency among HSPF model applications in Minnesota.
This project will complete the final Implementation Plan, semi-annual and final reports and hold project meetings. The Implementation Plan will identify target areas and priorities for implementation strategies to improve water quality for Bluff Creek. This project will build the groundwork so Bluff Creek will meet water quality standards for aquatic life in the future.
