Our Water Resources
The LMRWMO prioritizes waterbodies (lakes and streams) within the WMO to monitor in order to track long term trends in water quality. This helps to know how lakes are improving or declining over time and where we should allocate resources and implement projects to improve water quality.
Water Resources are deemed impaired if they do not meet one or more water quality standards. More information on impaired waters can be found on the MN Pollution Control Agency’s website.
