Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Evaluation and outcome plans are required as a part of the grant agreement between BWSR and the grantee. These required plans consist of verifying project installation and creating operation and maintenance plans to ensure the project is functioning as designed. Funded projects meet locally identified water quality goals within the larger scope of Minnesota's clean water efforts. Projects reduce pollutant loads aimed at improving watershed health over time. The long-term evaluation of clean water fund projects will be monitored as part of the state's intensive watershed monitoring strategy.

Measurable Outcome(s)

This project resulted in estimated reductions of 108 lb. nitrogen/year, and 22 lb. phosphorus/yr, as well as significantly reducing the number of bacteria entering the water resource of concern.

Project Overview

A direct appropriation of $400,000 in FY 2010 and $600,000 in FY2011 for the Anoka Conservation District (ACD) is for the metropolitan landscape restoration program for water quality and improvement projects in the seven-county metro area.
The goal of the program is to improve water quality in locally identified high-priority water resources. ACD is working with other metro-area local government units to fully utilize program cost-share funds and to leverage local funds to install the most cost-effective practices available to treat stormwater runoff. Assessments developed as part of this program will include identifying site-specific best management practices for pollutant and stormwater volume load reduction estimates, installation cost estimates, and long-term operation and maintenance cost estimate.
