This project addresses Eagle, Oak, and Swede lakes in Carver County. They all exceed the state of Minnesota’s water quality standard for nutrients (phosphorus). Carver County Land and Water Services is taking the technical lead in both developing this TMDL study and coordinating implementation activities to restore these water bodies.
