Water quality data

Find and download data from surface water monitoring sites in Minnesota. Where available, you can also view the conditions of lakes, rivers or streams that have been assessed.

The assessments are required under the federal Clean Water Act. They are used to determine whether water bodies meet their intended uses, such as being suitable for fishing or swimming. Learn more about assessments: Impaired Waters and Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL)/303(d) studies
