640 tons of sediment /yr
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
Red Lake River currently does not meet state water quality standards due to high amounts of sediment. For this project, the Red Lake County Soil and Water Conservation District will continue to work cooperatively with the Red Lake County Ditch Authority, and the landowners to reduce erosion and sedimentation into Judicial County Ditch 66. Judicial County Ditch 66 outlets into Cyr Creek which outlets directly into the Red Lake River. This project targets 22 sites for grade stabilizations or grassed waterway implementation and is estimated to reduce 640 tons of sediment being delivered to the Red Lake River.
