Comments: There are no MN milestone rivers that provide regular monthly sampling (not event based) in Cook County. As of 2007, the Brule River and Poplar River are the only two rivers assumed to be fully assessed. See MPCA manual on assessment of rivers for tmdl. Guidance Manual for Assessing the Quality of Minnesota Surface Waters for the Determination of Impairment 305 (b) Report and 303 (d) List - October, 2007. The recommendations above are for the bare minimum to assess the lake for 303-d lists. Additional parameters should be considered when a known or suspected threat to water quality occurs. Some additional parameters for consideration are listed below along with a potential stressor. Septic System Impacts-Phosphorous, Nitrogen, Total Suspended Solids, Turbidity and Biological Oxygen Demand Road Impacts – Chloride, Turbidity, Total Suspended Solids Runoff Impacts – Phosphorous, Total Suspended Solids, Turbidity A more complete list of parameters for a stream or lake suffering from development impacts would likely include: Field measurements: pH, Dissolved Oxygen, Specific Conductivity, Temperature, Turbidity and Total Suspended Solids Lab paramters of Turbidity, Total Suspended Solids, Total Phosphorous, Ortho Phosphorous, Alkalinity, Chloride, Nitrogen Parameters (Total Nitrogen, Nitrate + Nitrite and Ammonia) The hydrolab owned by Cook County should be utilized for both Lake and Stream montioring to record field measurements. All data should be submitted to the MPCA EDA Storet database for inclusion in water quality assessments.
