MPCA seeks comments on water quality reports for Sand Hill River Watershed

According to a recent Minnesota Pollution Control Agency report, some lakes and streams in the Sand Hill River Watershed are polluted with excess nutrients, bacteria, sediment that causes cloudiness in the water, and low dissolved oxygen. In some areas, the pollution is severe enough to be harmful to aquatic insects and fish in the water bodies. 

The MPCA has published a set of two reports on the watershed, and is seeking comments from the public on both through June 29. More information and a link to the report is available on the MPCA's web site.
