Project Overview

This project proposes the implementation of 10 best management practices identified as having the lowest cost-benefit ratio as it relates to phosphorus reduction to downstream Moody and Bone Lakes with an estimated reduction to watershed phosphorus loads to Bone Lake by 90 pounds per year and to Moody Lake by 24 pounds per year. The Bone Lake watershed is at the ?top? of the larger watershed, making it an ideal location to begin work that will have direct improvements downstream. The 2010 6- Lakes Total Maximum Daily Load report indicates that improvements in the water quality of Moody Lake and Bone Lake will contribute to improved water quality in School Lake, Little Comfort Lake, and Comfort Lake.

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.

Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Implementation of the 10 projects will reduce watershed phosphorus loads to Bone Lake by 90 lb/yr and to
Moody Lake by 24 lb/yr, and reduce watershed sediment loads to Bone Lake by 8.2 tons/yr and to Moody Lake by
4.9 tons/yr.
