South Fork Crow River Lakes - Excess Nutrients: TMDL project

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.

Map and location

The South Fork Crow River lakes are located in Carver County, west of the Twin Cities metro area. The lakes are in the South Fork Crow River watershed in the Upper Mississippi River basin, in areas that are primarily rural.
