A Fish and Wildlife Survey of the Minnesota River Near New Ulm

Huber, Earl
This survey report examines an area proposed for dam and reservoir development by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It describes the project area (physiography, hydrography, climatology, hydrology, land use, and commercial features), its fish and wildlife resources, and the probable effect of the project on fish and wildlife. The recommendation is made to explore alternatives because of the potential for damage to habitat and increase in erosion. Maps depicting marsh types are appended.

Biological Survery of the Minnesota River

Kirsch, Nancy A.
This report contains the results of a stream survey, conducted during the summers from 1978 to 1982, to collect baseline data on the fish and wildlife resources of the Minnesota River. It includes a description of the physical characteristics of the river watershed, water quality, water uses, aquatic and terrestrial vegetation, wildlife fisheries, and invertebrates. Study conclusions presented include the exacerbation of stream-bank erosion by agricultural encroachment. Recommendations offered include the implementation and enforcement of appropriate land-use practices.
