Environmental Protection Agency Grant: The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Region 5, Water Division, Watersheds and Wetlands Branch, is soliciting proposals from eligible agencies/organizations for the coordination and acceleration of research, studies, experiments, training, investigations and demonstration projects to improve State and Tribal capacity to effectively and efficiently assess point and nonpoint sources of nutrients and sediments to Lake of the Woods. Lake of the Woods (LOW) is an international water body located on the U.S. and Canadian border bounded by Minnesota, the Red Lake Reservation, Manitoba and Ontario. Water quality in the LOW is degraded by enrichment of nutrients. Over‐enrichment and climate change are thought to be key factors causing extensive blooms of algae, which are at times toxic. This impairswater quality and the lake's value for recreation, drinking water, and fish habitat. The southern portion of the basin is also experiencing severe erosion.
