Past Studies Review for Sediment Reduction Strategy_05-04-2018

The purpose of this memorandum is to provide a review of past studies relevant to sediment and flow in the Minnesota River Basin. The goal is for this review to support future revisions to the Sediment Reduction Strategy for the Minnesota River and South Metro Mississippi River (MPCA, 2015). The past studies review focuses on studies that were not cited in the current Sediment Reduction Strategy, since they were reviewed in detail therein. (The previous studies are nonetheless important and should be understood by those working on this project.) New studies are presented in either an Introduction or Sources of Sediment section below, depending on which section of the current Sediment Reduction Strategy they would address. Following the review, the memorandum suggests updates to the Sediment Reduction Strategy, and provides a list of remaining knowledge gaps.
