2017 Lower MN River Targeted Water Quality Practices Installation
7,250 tons of sediment/year and 6670 lbs of phosphorus/year
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
This project builds on the momentum and success of previous Clean Water Fund grants in making significant non-point source pollution reductions that address state-identified turbidity, excess nutrient and dissolved oxygen impairments of the Lower Minnesota River and points downstream. These water quality improvements will be achieved by constructing high-value, cost-effective conservation best management practices in Scott County directly tributary to the Minnesota River. Practices are anticipated to include: grade control structures, waterways, water and sediment control basins, filter strips, native grasses/prairie, and stream/channel stabilization.
