Ann River Watershed TMDL Restoration Plan

Along with a Total Maximum Daily Load Study (TMDL) that is approved by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) requires a Implementation (Restoration) Plan that outlines the steps associated with projects designed to improve water quality to meet the State water quality standards. The Ann River Watershed currently has two lakes and one stream that are on the EPA's 303(d) Impaired Waters List; these lakes (Ann and Fish) are impaired for Excess Nutrients (phosphorus), while the stream (Ann River) is impaired for Bacteria (E. coli) and Biotic Integrity. Within this document, we will outline some of the steps that can be taken to restore the impaired lakes to meet water quality standards.
