Ashley Creek & Adley Creek Inventory
This project will result in the development of two sub-watershed assessments for City of Winnebago and the City of Minnesota Lake to develop a priority list of practices to mitigate the synergistic impacts from agricultural runoff and urban stormwater.
Completed PTMApp assessment for all included watersheds, as well as bank stabilization demonstration project. Promoted project for landowner participation.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
The Ashley Creek and Adley Creek Inventory Project will involve desk top analysis and a field scale inventory of riparian areas to determine priority areas to install erosion control Best Management Practices and vegetative buffers for nutrient reduction. Assessments will also be made for potential E.coli bacteria sources. Inventory data will be shared with local partners to further develop an implementation plan to address nutrient loading and the listed impairments on each creek. Two demonstration projects will be held on each creek, such as stream bank restoration, cattle exclusion and buffer strips.
