SimZumbro: High Tech Tools For Cleaner Water
By Ben Roush, Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA)
We’ve all heard of SimCity and SimEarth, computer simulations where you get to “control” a city or a planet and see what happens. But can we do the same thing with a watershed? Yes we can! Join MPCA Modelers and Zumbro Watershed Partnership staff to learn about water quality models for the Zumbro Watershed. See and understand how water quality models can help us fix the Zumbro Watershed’s problems. See what we think will happen in the watershed as we work to change land use and best practices to reduce river pollution and flooding events and what management scenarios have been developed to realize these changes.
