Root River PWS Plan - Nine Key Element Plan

Purpose

The Root River Priority Watershed Project plan assesses the nonpoint sources of pollution in the Root River Watershed and guides the implementation of nonpoint source control measures. These control measures are needed to meet specific water resource objectives for the Root River and its tributaries. The purpose of this project is to reduce the amount of pollutants originating from nonpoint sources that reach surface water and groundwater within the Root River Priority Watershed Project area.

Objective

The primary objective of the project is to reduce nonpoint source pollution to the surface water and groundwater, and to enhance and protect the water quality of streams in the Root River Watershed.

Outcome

This report sets forth such a plan for the Root River watershed. It assesses the existing water quality conditions in the watershed, identifies and quantifies the existing pollution sources, recommends nonpoint source control measures, estimates associated costs, and sets forth an implementation program.
