Pomme de Terre River Watershed - Turbidity: TMDL Project

Minnesota's Impaired Waters and TMDLs


There is one reach in the Pomme de Terre River Watershed that is impaired for turbidity. The reach is located in the lower portion of the Pomme de Terre River from Muddy Creek to Marsh Lake. This reach was listed in 2002. The work completed within the watershed is sponsored by the Pomme de Terre Joint Powers Board. A workplan has been completed and a draft TMDL is currently under development. A draft TMDL is expected to be completed in 2009 and an implementation plan in 2010.
