Web Site Wins for Clean Water Efforts

LakeSuperiorStreams.org Website

A Web site designed to help the public minimize stream pollution received a Technical Excellence Award from the North American Lake Management Society (NALMS) this month. The award recognizes LakeSuperiorStreams.org for “outstanding research in stream and lake restoration, protection and management.” It was accepted by Jesse Schomberg of Minnesota Sea Grant and Rich Axler of the Natural Resources Research Institute (NRRI) at the annual NALMS International Symposium held during November in Madison, Wisc.

LakeSuperiorStreams.org was also named Site of the Month for December by the Great Lakes Commission’s Great Lakes Information Network.

The Web site incorporates real-time water quality data from five area streams with interpretive information, classroom curricula and case studies. It also contains a site design toolkit for educating anyone who impacts stream water quality – including contractors, developers and agency decision-makers – about the environmental links between our watershed activities, our streams and Lake Superior.

LakeSuperiorStreams.org is a collaborative project involving NRRI, Sea Grant, the University of Minnesota Duluth’s Department of Education and Facilities Management, the City of Duluth, Western Lake Superior Sanitary District, Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, the South St. Louis County Soil and Water Conservation District, and 14 other organizations that form the Regional Stormwater Protection Team.
