12-Mile Creek Dissolved Oxygen Total Maximum Daily Load Report North Fork Crow River Major Watershed

This Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) study was completed for 12 Mile Creek (AUID 07010204-681),
which is a tributary reach in the North Fork Crow 8 digit Hydrologic Unit (HUC) located in the Upper
Mississippi River Basin in Minnesota. The study addresses one dissolved oxygen (DO) impairment. The
12-Mile Creek DO impaired reach watershed covers approximately 61 square miles in Wright County,
Minnesota. The predominant land cover types throughout the watershed are corn/soybeans (46%), hay
and pasture (23%) and wetlands and open water areas (14%). The goal of this TMDL is to quantify the
oxygen demanding pollutant load reductions needed to meet State water quality standards for DO in
the impaired reach.
