“Many of the St. Cloud area lakes and rivers that drain into the Mississippi River continue to have pollution problems including too many nutrients and bacteria, according to a new report.
“The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency released the water-quality monitoring and assessment report for the 1,080-mile watershed, which includes 907 miles of river and 374 lakes. It covers parts of Benton, Meeker, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Sherburne, Stearns and Wright counties,” via St. Cloud Times.
