The Burandt Lake Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Implementation Plan addresses nutrient impairments in Burandt Lake located in the Carver Creek Watershed in Carver County, Minnesota. Burandt Lake, a deep drainage lake located in the North Central Hardwood Forest (NCHF) ecoregion in the center of Carver County, Minnesota, was designated as an impaired water by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for total phosphorus concentrations that exceed State-established standards. The Carver County Water Management Organization (CCWMO) has completed a TMDL to quantify the pollutant reductions needed to meet the water quality standards for total phosphorus in the lake in accordance with Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act. The TMDL and this Implementation Plan were prepared and modified with input and comments provided by the City of Waconia, local landowners, the County's Water Environment and Natural Resource Committee (WENR), and the County Board.
