The St. Louis River Watch Program has student groups out in the St. Louis River and other area streams monitoring water quality. River Watch began as a program of the MPCA and the RAP, and is now being operated by the Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College on the Minnesota side of the watershed.
A similar program called Water Watch is being conducted
on the Wisconsin side of the watershed by the Lake Superior Research Institute
at the University of Wisconsin-Superior.
