Developing North Dakota’s Nutrient Reduction Strategy

The North Dakota Department of Health, with support from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, is developing a Statewide Nutrient Reduction Strategy that will:

  • Result in the development and implementation of nutrient related water quality standards for North Dakota’s lakes and streams.
  • Emphasize sustainable and cost effective approaches to reduce nutrients reaching waters of the state of North Dakota and the United States.
  • Target implementation activities which utilize available financial and technical assistance in an efficient and effective manner.
  • Manage implementation at multiple geographic levels ranging from the farm field to the 12-digit HUC watershed to the 8 digit HUC basin to the Red River Basin.

To that end, we are convening a multiple meetings to gain input and buy-in on the North Dakota’s Draft Nutrient Strategy from selected state agencies, government officials, and local stakeholders. The information on this site provides registration links and logistical materials for each meeting.
