Understanding Water Quality Stresses and Recent Trends in the St. Croix River Watershed


Water Quality

Project Description

This project is a 3-year study to better understand stressors affecting water quality in the St. Croix River watershed including nutrient concentrations and their distribution. It will also inform enhanced water quality monitoring in the basin.

Overall, the project will help to: (1) rank stress in the different areas of the watershed (2) track and assess nutrient loadings, and (3) verify ecosystem health in order to assist in restoration of fish populations.
