Carver County Stream Monitoring

Streams are monitored March through October.  Monthly measurements are taken of total phosphorus, inorganic nitrogen, bacteria (E. coli), and total suspended solids (sediment).

There are five sub-watershed within Carver County Water Management Organization. They are Bevens Creek, Carver Creek, East Chaska Creek, West Chaska Creek and a portion of the Crow River. Use the interactive maps below to learn about each sub-watershed/stream.
