The MN Department of Natural Resources conducted a study of river stability within the Thief River Watershed from 2010 to 2012. The purpose of the this fluvial geomorphology study was to develop a better understanding of the impact of natural disturbances and past, present, and proposed land use practices on river channel stability. In the spring of 2010, a reconnaissance effort assessed 72.5 miles of watercourses within the Thief River Watershed. In 2011 and 2012, 13 sites were selected for more intensive field surveys to assess stability.
