Civil 3 - Lake Audubon

Student Team: Joseph Dodds, Steven Kuhlmeier, Logan Palmer, Cale DeTevis
Advisor: Aimee Navickis-Bracsh
Sponsoring Organization: City of Reardan
Liaison: Kim Sherwood

This project will assess the plausibility of overland connection between Lake Audubon, a man-made wetland that receives waste-water treatment plant (WWTP) effluent from the City of Reardan, and the headwaters of nearby Crab Creek. Upper Crab Creek is a listed 303d water body for fecal coliform and Lake Audubon is a potential source. To assess contribution, the project team is developing an overland hydrological model of Lake Audubon’s watershed while monitoring several water quality parameters to verify results. Project findings will identify permitting needs for Reardan and become part of the total maximum daily load (TMDL) for Upper Crab Creek.
