Carver Creek Turbidity TMDL

The state agency responsible for listing waters in Minnesota is the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA). In 2002, the MPCA added Carver Creek to Minnesota's 303(d) list of impaired waters for an impairment of aquatic life due to turbidity levels in exceedance of the water quality target of 25 Nephelometric turbidity units (NTUs) for Class 2B waters. Thus, the objective of this TMDL report is to estimate allowable pollutant loads and to allocate these loads to the known pollutant sources in the watershed so that the appropriate control measures can be implemented in order for Carver Creek to meet the water quality standard for turbidity.
