Project Overview
The Minnesota Nutrient Planning Portal website is part of Minnesota’s broader Nutrient Reduction Strategy to help serve as a guide for the reduction of nutrients in waters throughout Minnesota. A considerable amount of research was conducted to better understand nutrient sources, monitoring and delivery across the state. In order to enhance watershed scale information exchange, the website synthesizes and organizes information by watershed (HUC 8) in a manner designed to meet the needs of local decision-making for nutrient planning across the state.

Seeking Feedback
The website will continue to be enriched over the next year with information about case studies and pilot projects. Generally, we are seeking feedback on how this website can be improved to better serve local nutrient planning in Minnesota.  We welcome your advice. Please contact, 507-389-5492.

The project was funded by a grant from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. Website information is largely drawn from research found in Minnesota's Nutrient Reduction Strategy and Nitrogen in Minnesota Surface Water reports. A team of researchers and students at the Water Resources Center at Minnesota State University, Mankato researched, collected, compiled data and constructed this website.  Funding and support provided by EPA Cooperative Agreement: CA Number: MX00E01002
