2017 CWF Phosphorus Treatment Enhancements at County Road 50
The Vermillion River Watershed JPO is partnering with Dakota County and the City of Lakeville to enhance stormwater management along County Road 50. A treatment train approach with an iron-enhanced sand filter at the tail end to remove dissolved phosphorus will be implemented to treat a drainage area including a portion of the upstream neighborhoods that currently receive little to no stormwater treatment. The practice is anticipated to reduce 20 pounds of phosphorus annually from reaching Lake Marion, a water resource with high recreational value targeted for protection.

This project will result in a reduction of 20 lbs of phosphorus per year.
This project resulted in an estimated annual reduction of 25.5 lbs of phosphorus, 1.99 tons of sediment, and 2.59 acre-feet per year of water volume.
