2019 Mallery Jerseys Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plan Implementation
for grants to protect and restore surface water and drinking water; to keep water on the land; to protect, enhance, and restore water quality in lakes, rivers, and streams; and to protect groundwater and drinking water, including feedlot water quality and subsurface sewage treatment system projects and stream bank, stream channel, shoreline restoration, and ravine stabilization projects. The projects must use practices demonstrated to be effective, be of long-lasting public benefit, include a match, and be consistent with total maximum daily load (TMDL) implementation plans, watershed restoration and protection strategies (WRAPS), or local water management plans or their equivalents. A portion of these funds may be used to seek administrative efficiencies through shared resources by multiple local governmental units.
The practices identified in the CNMP will reduce phosphorus by 76 lbs (83%), nitrogen by 265 lbs (85%), fecal coliform by 111 E+13 cfu (50%), chemical oxygen demand (COD) by 4,998 lbs (86%), and biochemical oxygen
demand (BOD) by 1,110 lbs (83%).
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
The Mallery Jerseys dairy farm is critically located along the bluff of the St. Croix River escarpment and drains directly to the St. Croix River. In 2018, a Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plan was completed and identified a number of additional practices that should be implemented to improve the water quality of the St. Croix River. The proposed practices will reduce the phosphorus and nitrogen by 76 pounds (83%)and 265 pounds (85%) respectively.
