Lac qui Parle River Watershed Total Maximum Daily Load

This report addresses impaired stream reaches in the Lac qui Parle River Watershed listed on the 303(d) impaired waters list requiring a TMDL. The Lac qui Parle River Watershed, 8-digit hydrologic unit code (HUC-08) watershed number 07020003, is located in southwest Minnesota and drains portions of South Dakota; however, no allocations are assigned to areas in South Dakota. This TMDL report addresses nine impairments in eight stream reaches in Minnesota's portion of the watershed. These include eight Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria impairments and one total suspended solids (TSS) impairment. Addressing multiple impairments in one TMDL report is consistent with Minnesota's Water Quality Framework that seeks to develop watershed-wide protection and restoration strategies, rather than focus on individual reach impairments. Included in this report are a general strategy and cost estimate for implementation of management or structural practices to address the listed impairments.
