Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

This project will engage Dakota County residents and the churches, schools, organizations, and associations to which they belong. These groups come to understand their personal connections to water quality by building solutions in their church yards, educational facilities, common backyards, or treasured lakeshores. Often the installations involve a hands-on learning experience for the engaged landowners.

Project Overview

This project is a continuation of the Dakota County Community Initiative, which has received Clean Water Funds in 2012 and 2013. It will provide cost share funding to organizations and associations who voluntarily construct medium sized water quality best management practices (BMPs) in Dakota County.

This project will use the Dakota County Soil and Water Conservation District's existing Conservation Initiative Funding program to provide technical assistance and monetary incentives for targeted, medium-sized projects such as raingardens, bioinfiltration, biofiltration, bioswales, shoreline stabilizations, and other BMPs. Project proposals will be solicited from faith-based organizations, homeowner associations, school organizations, lake associations, and others that own or manage large areas of land.

This project is estimated to result in the installation of up to 8 more projects treating runoff from up to 10 acres of urban land with an annual combined reduction of approximately 1.5 million gallons of untreated stormwater, 5 pounds phosphorus, and 2 tons of sediment. Additionally, the project will engage and educate citizens in water resource protection by providing the opportunity for community involvement and hands-on learning through project installation.
