Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Two large, actively eroding gullies are contributing tremendous loads of phosphorus and sediment to the St. Croix River. Both of these perennial issues are located along the St. Croix River escarpment. Stabilizing these two gullies will greatly reduce the sediment and phosphorus loading to the St. Croix River, which will help meet the pollutant reduction goal of Lake St. Croix.

Project Overview

Two large, actively eroding gullies located a few miles apart in Amador Township are contributing tremendous loads of phosphorus and sediment to the St. Croix River. One gully (Gully A) includes a major agricultural gully, severe road erosion, and sediment deposits of a foot or more thick in a state park. The second gully (Gully B) is over 4 feet deep, adjacent to a road, and is an annual problem. Stabilizing these two gullies will greatly reduce the sediment and phosphorus loading to the St. Croix River, which will help meet the reduction goal of the Lake St. Croix Total Maximum Daily Load Implementation Plan.
