City of Mora Stormwater and Mora Lake BMP Assessment
The goal of the Lake Volney Targeted Restoration project is to improve the water quality draining to Lake Volney. The project consists of 8 priority areas that will have 14 Best Management Practices installed.
A subwatershed retrofit analysis for the City of Mora has been completed.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
With a population of approximately 3,500, the City of Mora is the largest municipality in the Snake River watershed. Monitoring indicates the city's Lake Mora has high levels of total phosphorus, total suspended solids, and other pollutants. This project will develop a plan that identifies several stormwater best management practices (BMPs) for the City of Mora and surrounding rural areas to address these impairments. Modeling and analysis will be used to target projects where they can provide the most benefit. Implementation of these BMPs will improve water quality in Mora Lake and the Snake River downstream of the City of Mora.
