Using the BuffCAT, 6,079 parcels have been determined to be compliant, while 277 parcels will need further review in Carlton County.
This project will reduce nutrient and sediment delivery to 12 impaired lakes and impaired reaches of the Buffalo River. Under this project, 65 Water and sediment control basins and 80 acres of filter strips will be implemented to meet 28% of the Phosphorus reduction goals for lakes in the watershed and as much as 32% of the Phosphorus reduction goal for the Buffalo River Mainstem.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
A joint effort of Becker and Clay Soil and Water Conservation District, the Buffalo Red Shallow Lakes and Mainstem Improvement Strategy will reduce nutrient and sediment delivery to 12 impaired lakes and impaired reaches of the Buffalo River through a targeted and prioritized approach to the implementation of Best Management Practices (BMPs). Numerous models have been combined with local knowledge to identify chief sources of constituents in the watershed and to isolate and prioritize implementation sites demonstrating the most significant gains in water quality.
