Ground Water Hydrology of Swift County, Minnesota

Fax, J.G.
The Department of Natural Resources saw the need for a study of the ground water availability in many areas of Minnesota. This was a result of severe droughts in the 1970's. These events demonstrated the need for drinking water supplies other than Minnesota's surface waters. The report contained maps of all the wells that existed, along with their depth to aquifer, topographic setting, well size and other information.

Fisheries Stream Survey Report: Redwood River (Camden State Park)

A 5.5 mile section of the Redwood River was surveyed to gain and understanding of the habitat and fish species present. The study area was near Camden Park and had underwent recent brown trout stocking efforts. The stream was found to be able to hold trout and other fish species through the season. The addition of trout ponds were also being considered. It was determined that the areas proposed were unsuitable for such endeavors. It was also determined that stream improvement projects should not be attempted within the study area.

Blue Earth River Initiative Comprehensive

The local government units which reside in the Blue Earth River Watershed joined together to create the Blue Earth River Initiative (BERBI) Comprehensive Plan. The goals of this plan are to improve the water quality of the Blue Earth River Basin through the use of best management practices and to share water quality improvement strategies with others. It lists a series of objectives and actions BERBI plans to implement. Data collected during the Minnesota River Assessment Project and historical information is also included.

Blue Earth River Subbasin: Study Area 1 of the Minnesota River Basin portion of a Southern Minneota Rivers Basin Study

The objective of this publication was to present a collection of available data and projects which had been done on the Blue Earth River Basin at the time. Once completed persons could then use this document to identify areas and problems within the subbasin that need further study. The contents include much data on the topics of natural resources, economics, and land resource development.

Wildlife Habitat Losses in Ten Mile Creek Watershed (Judicial Ditch 8), Lac qui Parle and Yellow Medicine Counties, MN

Bonnema, K.W.
350 wetlands totaling 4,730 acres were destroyed by the installation of the Judicial Ditch 8 drainage system. This system, containing 135 miles of tile and 149 miles of open ditch disrupted much of the areas wildlife. It is estimated that the installation of the large ditch system reduced wildlife populations by 12,000 ducks, 9,000 muskrats and 8,000 pheasants. If a more modest approach were taken it is possible that much of the habitat and wildlife loss could have been prevented.

A Management Plan for the Minnesota River

This document is a plan to manage the Minnesota River from Lac Qui Parle dam to Franklin as one of Minnesota's Wild, Scenic and Recreational River Systems. If approved by the counties involved it would outline specific management techniques to be used to preserve the Minnesota River Basin. Social characteristics, a survey of the natural environment, and recreational features are also included in this report.
