Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, Water Quality, and You!

As part of their 'watershed approach' the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) is conducting WRAPs in each major watershed to assess the health of the watershed, prepare plans for restoration of impaired lakes and rivers, and protect good quality waters for future generations.  The MPCA keeps a running list/profile of all WRAPs in Minnesota on their website.

Thanks to the Clean Water Land and Legacy Amendment, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has been able to provide the Red Lake Watershed District and other organizations with funding for watershed restoration and protection (WRAP) projects. The Clean Water Land and Legacy Amendment has also recently funded the collection of additional data to guide assessment, restoration, and protection efforts through the surface water assessment grant (SWAG) for water quality monitoring projects.  See MPCA's Watershed Approach to Restoring and Protecting Water Quality.
