Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) and Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) Project Boundaries [Minnesota] Full Details
- Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) and Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) Project Boundaries [Minnesota]
- A polygon feature class used to map the spatial extent of Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) projects and Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) areas in Minnesota. MPCA water resource staff identified Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) and Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) project boundaries as a central data element for the agency. A team of staff from the MPCA Watershed Division and the MPCA Information Systems Office worked together to collect and store this data in a central repository and distribute it to MPCA partners as needed. The team designed a geospatial database, developed a user guide, and developed communication and distribution strategies for the database.The resulting geospatial database is maintained by the MPCA Watershed Division and polygons are included in the database for all EPA-approved TMDL/WRAPS projects. This new spatial database will give MPCA staff and external partners the ability to see the spatial extent of Minnesota TMDL/WRAPS projects in a GIS context. The database can also be used in spatial analysis operations with other spatial data layers that map features in the environment such as feedlots, surface water discharge locations, and riparian areas. The availability of this data should help to support collaboration between various organizations involved in water resource management and impaired waters issues in Minnesota.
