Otter Tail River Watershed Assessment

The Otter Tail River Watershed covers 1,249,541 acres. The river begins in Clearwater County and snakes through Becker, Otter Tail, and Wilkin Counties before joining the Bios de Sioux River to form the Red River of the North in Breckenridge. The Buffalo-Red River Watershed District is working across the watershed with many other organizations to assess how clean the water is. A large amount of data has been gathered, and it will take time to sift through it. This process may take several years to complete, so stay tuned for future updates on water quality in the watershed.
