Stream Assessment (2012-2013)

In 2012 and 2013, the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District (MCWD) updated the Stream Assessment study to evaluate stream quality parameters including bank erosion, in stream habitat, storm sewer outfalls, macroinvertebrate and fish diversity, impoundments, woody debris, and riparian land uses. 

 

This updated version of the Stream Assessment will be used to develop CIP plans for subwatersheds, protections for 1st and 2nd order streams, and as a comparitive data point between 2003 and 2012/2013.
