103E Legal Ditch BMPs
Through the Mustinka River Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy high priority locations have been identified as critical areas to reduce sediment from agricultural fields. The goal of this project is to target one of the areas that is of high concern, the watershed of Traverse County Ditch 37. This effort intends to begin a program to install side inlets and erosion control berms along the ditch with the goal of reducing the sediment load by 340 tons of sediment per year.
