The Warren: A Truly Forgotten River

Wilkinson , Drew
This provocative report challenges basic assumptions regarding the current water-quality problems of the Minnesota River and the factors that contribute to those problems. The River Warren Research Committee (RWRC) proposes that the major river pollutant is silt (soil) deposited in the river, not from agricultural runoff, but as a result of conditions created when the Glacial River Warren flowed through the region.

Minnesota River Assessment Project Report: Workplan and Project Summary

Minnesota Pollution Control Agency
The first volume of the Minnesota River Assessment Project (MRAP) Report contains the detailed workplan under which the subsequent studies (physical/chemical assessment, biological/toxicological assessment, and land use assessment) were conducted, a project summary, and recommendations. The summary provides a brief history and description of the river; a discussion of river pollution, hydrology, and waste load allocation; a description of MRAP; and summaries of the contents of Volumes II, III, and IV.

Minnesota River Assessment Project Report: Biological and Toxicological Assessment

Minnesota Pollution Control Agency
In order to determine realistic recommendations for river cleanup activities, this component of the Minnesota River Assessment Project was designed to assess current condition in the Minnesota River and its tributaries. The three categories of study were: physical (habitat), chemical/toxicological (water, sediment, and toxicological), and biological (fish, macroinverterbrate, and diatom communities).
