Watershed Health Assessment for Lakes Scores

These data include data to support evaluations of lake health across<br/> Minnesota. Healthy lakes are near to their natural state and are impacted by factors<br/> that occur both within a lake and surrounding near shore areas as well as within the<br/> watershed that drains to a lake (or lakeshed). Lake health scores include multiple<br/> components that together characterize lake conditions including water quality,<br/> biology, hydrology, geomorphology, and connectivity. Additional data presented here<br/> provide basic information about a lake's characteristics and location as well as<br/> metrics used to derive lake health scores.<br/><br/> The lake health scores and additional data can also be accessed through a web<br/> application; learn more about the Watershed Health Assessment Framework for Lakes<br/> at: https://arcgis.dnr.state.mn.us/ewr/whaflakes/
