This Kohlman Lake TMDL Implementation Plan is multi-faceted, with various projects put into place over the course of many years. This adaptive management approach allows for monitoring and reflection on project successes and the chance to change course if progress is exceeding expectations or is unsatisfactory. The Ramsey-Washington Metro Watershed District (District) is taking the lead on implementing the projects described in this plan, with the support of local cities, counties and other entities with property in the Kohlman Lake watershed. If the District's watershed projects (constructed after 2002) are successful in achieving phosphorus reductions toward meeting the watershed's overall WLA, the cities and other entities with Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System entities (MS4s) in the Kohlman Lake watershed will be able to take credit toward achieving their WLA defined in the Kohlman Lake TMDL. If the projects implemented as a part of this plan are not ultimately successful in meeting the goals described in the Kohlman Lake TMDL report, the District will meet with all of the MS4s in the Kohlman Lake watershed to collaboratively determine future direction and to decide if additional participation by these groups is needed.
