RCRCA Monitoring Program has provided water quality information to state agencies and the general public for over 20 years.

We currently have three long-term sites in both the Redwood River Watershed and Cottonwood River Watershed.

We also monitor the Minnesota River at Morton.

Water quality data at each site is available from the homepage of each watershed.

RCRCA also provides monitoring for tributaries in the Middle Minnesota Watershed (Crow Creek, Birch Coulee Creek, Wabasha Creek and Spring Creek) as well as taking water samples within the Redwood and Cottonwood River Watersheds for the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.


Below are various links to sites that are useful for monitoring weather as well as river stage and flows.
