LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
The Ann River Watershed is a sub-watershed of the Snake River Watershed located within the St. Croix River Basin. The Ann River watershed includes Ann Lake, Fish Lake, Ann River and its tributaries. This project will focus on watershed load reductions. Based on the strategies found in the Implementation Plan, the first priority will be to target the animal and cropland - agricultural areas on the Ann River and its tributaries. The second priority will be to target the lake shore and streambank areas in the non-agricultural areas. The estimated pollutant reductions in this project include 694 tons/year of sediment, 3,839 pounds/year of phosphorus, and 250 pounds/year of nitrogen.
