Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

This project addresses phosphorus in urban runoff by reducing the volume of runoff discharging downstream to the impaired lakes. HydroCAD and P8 were used to estimate an annual load reduction of 118 lbs/year of phosphorus and 38,400 lbs/TSS, as well as an annual volume reduction of 108 acre-feet per year. The reduction of the TMDL-required Upper Twin Lake total phosphorus reduction is 16% of the TMDL-required Upper Twin Lake TP reduction of 741 lbs/year.
