Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

This program will engage citizens by working directly with the BLCA to provide targeted trainings to land owners adjacent to the lakes and/or
directly connected through stormwater drainage pathways. The target citizens have properties identified as contributing to stormwater runoff
via site specific surveys and aerial lakeshore analysis. Trainings will promote landowner understanding of their impact on surface water and the
solutions and the process by which to make changes. Partners will also host a series of eight unique neighborshed parties which will augment
the sharing of information and building of relationships which will result in future projects.

Measurable Outcome(s)

This project resulted in an estimated reduction of 1 lb. of phosphorus per year

Project Overview

The Briggs Lake Chain Association (BLCA) is one of Sherburne County's most proactive lake associations. This sub-grant will provide for approximately 20-30 stormwater reduction best management practices on strategically targeted parcels previously identified as contributing to degraded water quality through Total Maximum Daily Loads, aerial lakeshore analysis and site-reviews conducted by the BLCA. This project will expand on existing DNR shoreline buffer grant and mini-grant programs, enabling the BLCA to implement a broader and more impactful array of urban pollution reduction practices including: rain gardens, swales, French drains, gutters, infiltration trenches, berms, and/or shoreline buffers.
