Project Overview

The purpose of this project is to conduct an inventory of the 103E drainage ditches where erosion, sediment, and/or nutrients are contributing substantially to water quality degradation, and prioritize sites for side water inlet control and/or buffer strip implementation.

Red Lake County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) has already been proactive in selecting locations where side water inlet structures are needed to reduce soil loss, eliminate sediment deposition in the impaired ditch systems, improve water quality, and reduce maintenance costs with the installation of 66 Side Water Inlet Structures over the past three years.

Through this project, Red Lake Watershed District, Red Lake County Ditch Authority, along with the SWCD, will be working together prioritizing county ditch systems (based upon water quality degradation and the amount of sediment loading that is occurring in the ditch systems), targeting where the greatest need for Side Water Inlet Structures is and where buffer strips are needed.
