Project Details
The Red River is impaired for sediment. This project will install best management practices to repair severe gullies that are contributing massive sediment loads to the Red River. The City of Moorhead also draws water from the Red River for its drinking water supply downstream. The proposed practices will reduce water treatment costs upon installation. Grant funds will be used to install four grade stabilization structures. These structures will control concentrated runoff and reduce flow velocities. The structures will prevent the advancement of gully-heads, restore environmental quality and reduce sediment deposition. Sediment reduction benefits are estimated to be 1,200 tons/year. Phosphorus reductions are estimated to be 900 pounds/year.
