The MPCA has identified 13 stream sites in the watershed to characterize watershed water quality. This project will supplement and complement the identification of the top 50 sites in the watershed that are contributing to water impairment and also help in identification of priority watersheds in the re-write of the watershed comprehensive plan. Water samples and field measurements will be collected at each monitoring location ranging from baseline events to high flow events.

This project will focus on stream sample collection in 2 different watersheds in Goodhue County. Sample locations on streams will utilize existing STORET station ID sites along the North Branch of the Middle Fork of the Zumbro River and Hay Creek. The Middle Fork flows from the Kenyon area east to the City of Pine Island and drains roughly 40,000 acres. Hay Creek is a ~17,000 acre watershed that drains agricultural land and rolling hills between the town of Goodhue and Red Wing.
