Bois de Sioux River Watershed Total Maximum Daily Load Study

This TMDL study addresses total phosphorus (TP), total suspended solids (TSS), and bacteria (in the form of Escherichia coli [E. coli]) impairments in two lakes and three streams located in the Bois de Sioux River Watershed (BdSRW), Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC), 09020101, as identified in the 2014 United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) CWA Section 303(d) list of impaired waters. The BdSRW is a tributary to the Red River of the North, in west-central Minnesota. The TMDL study's results will aid in the selection of implementation activities during the Bois de Sioux Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) process. The purpose of the WRAPS process is to support local working groups in developing scientifically supported restoration and protection strategies for subsequent implementation planning.
