Surface Water

square-lake-with MPCA monitoring crew

Surface water is any aboveground water, such as lakes, rivers and streams. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency uses a geographically based approach to surface water quality protection and restoration. This approach helps the agency better identify water quality problems, work with communities to establish shared goals and priorities, and develop effective pollutant-reduction strategies.
