The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Pomme de Terre River Association - TDML Research Project.

Banschbach, Madeline.

WesMin Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Council on behalf of the Pomme de Terre River Association requested and received funding from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) to assess available monitoring data, collect land use data, determine reduction scenarios, define reductions needed to reduce Fecal Coliform in the impaired waters of the Pomme de Terre River to compliant levels, complete a TMDL, educate the public, and increase public participation in the Pomme de Terre Watershed with emphasis on the impaired reach of Mud Creek. A student researcher helped update land use data, determine and define reduction scenarios, and create an implementation plan. She sampled six different sites along the Pomme de Terre River for nutrients, bacteria and flow. She compiled the data and set up the format for a TMDL on the southern reach of the river. See the Pomme de Terre River Association website at http://www.pdtriver.org. Banschbach's data and relevant maps appear in the summer 2006 Monitoring section of http://www.pdtriver.org/index_files/page0003.htm. More detailed data can be found at http://www.pdtriver.org/index_files/page0012.htm.
