‘Sediment, science, and stakeholders – clearing the muddy waters of the Minnesota River’
The Minnesota River cuts a vast valley through southern Minnesota before merging with the Mississippi River. It crosses fertile lands and transports high volumes of sediment. The geologic history of the Minnesota River makes it a large source of sediment, and land use choices with climate changes have greatly increased the amount of sediment. What do we do about it?
Join us for a fascinating and timely lecture by Dr. Peter Wilcock, Head of the Department of Watershed Sciences at Utah State University. Dr. Wilcock will discuss how technology is used to identify and evaluate options and how Minnesota can clear up the muddy waters of the Minnesota River.
