There are two main goals of this Cedar Basin HSPF project,
A. Overall development of the HSPF model in the Cedar Basin of Minnesota; and
B. Shell Rock River nutrient, DO , impairment modeling and TMDL completion.
This contract is with Emmons & Olivier Resources Inc (WOR) to develop Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) studies, and a Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) report for the Mississippi River - LaCrescent and Winnebago River watersheds.
This project supports monitoring and assessment activities by MPCA EAO staff and includes lab analysis, equipment, and fieldwork expenses associated with monitoring and assessment activities within the described priority watersheds.
Lake Monitoring: Lakes are monitored for nutrients, clarity and other information to provide the data needed to assess the aquatic recreation use support.
