POLK COUNTY LWRD: Round & Long Trade Lakes Phase 2-Tributary & Watershed Assessment

Polk County Land and Water Resources Department, in partnership with Burnett County and Round/Trade Lake Improvement Association, is sponsoring a two-phase Trade River watershed assessment project. The final deliverables include project update newsletters and a report containing collected data summaries, TSI calculations, habitat assessments, nutrient loading and modeling results, stakeholder capacity/education, and management recommendations.

Phase 2 includes:

1. Monitoring nine tributary sites for nutrients, chlorides, and TSS (monthly) and in-field parameters and flow (bi-weekly).

2. Groundwater reconnaissance of drinking water wells.

3. Groundtruthing of previous watershed delineation and refinement of models (WiLMS or BATHTUB) using collected data and various land use predictions/scenarios.

4. Identification of critical sites within the watershed.
