Project Overview

This project will address nutrient impairments of the Sauk River and Sauk River Chain of Lakes (SRCL) by minimizing runoff from 5 high priority feedlots. Specifically, contaminated runoff from 5 feedlots upstream of the SRCL will be eliminated. The sites were prioritized based on the Minnesota Feedlot Annualized Runoff Model index ratings and the location of these feedlots are within a Drinking Water Supply Management Areas. In addition to eliminating the runoff, a Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plan will also be completed for each site prior to construction to help identify sensitive features and proper manure application.
