ST. PAUL - State and local water quality scientists will test water quality and biology in the Redwood and Cottonwood river watersheds this spring and summer.
Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA), Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and Redwood-Cottonwood Rivers Control Area (RCRCA) staff will collect samples and data to determine the health of local rivers, streams and lakes.   
The watershed approach focuses on a watershed's condition as the starting point for water quality assessment, planning, implementation and measurement of results. The MPCA plans to assess the conditions and trends of Minnesota’s waters in a 10-year cycle.
