Project Overview

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 best management practices (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. The installed BMPs will result in the reduction of stormwater volumes and pollutants and will improve water quality in a number of impaired lakes and rivers in Dakota County. We anticipate installing up to 8 more BMPs treating runoff from up to 10 acres of urban land with an annual combined reduction of approximately 200,000 cubic feet of untreated stormwater, 5 lbs. phosphorus, and 3,000 lbs. total suspended solids.
