Minnesota River Basin Information Document

Senjem, Norman
This document provides a broad overview of basin planning and management in the Minnesota River Basin. In addition to information on the basin management process and its potential role in improving water quality, extensive background is provided on: the river basin (e.g., physical characteristics, origins, tributaries, and wetlands), impacts of historical settlement (e.g., agriculture, drainage), current land use trends, major watersheds, ecoregions, water resources, monitoring, water pollution sources, and environmentally sensitive and culturally significant areas.

Minnesota River Basin Trends Report

The Minnesota River Basin Trends Report provides a broad overview of trends related to the state of the Minnesota River. It is an easy-to-read overview that summarizes some of the major demographic, land use, water quality, biological and recreational trends in the Minnesota River Basin over the past 10 to 100 years depending on data availability.

Minnesota River Basin Statistical Trend Analysis

The Minnesota River Basin Statistical Trend Analysis summarizes statistical trend modeling results for water quality monitoring sites across the Minnesota River Basin (Basin). Water quality data from 21 stream and river monitoring stations in the Basin were analyzed for trends using two different statistical tests-QWTREND and Seasonal Kendall. The stations are distributed throughout the Basin and vary in scale from the Minnesota River itself to smaller streams such as Chetomba Creek and the Little Cobb River.
