City of Wahkon Stormwater Management Plan
This project aims to reduce pollutant loading to Mille Lacs Lake by working with the City of Wahkon to develop a comprehensive stormwater management plan for the City of Wahkon, located on the south side of the lake. Wahkon has no stormwater facilities and pollutant laden runoff flows into Mille Lacs Lake, untreated. This project will delineate and model stormwater flow in the City of Wahkon watershed, prioritize and target BMPs in the city watershed and conduct outreach to keep all stakeholders informed and build buy-in for future project implementation.
Accelerated Implementation Grants 2019
for accelerated implementation, including local resource protection and enhancement grants and statewide program enhancements of supplements for technical assistance, citizen and community outreach, compliance, and training and certification.
The immediate outcome of this project is a city wide stormwater management plan that will provide the
foundation for future installation of best management practices to reduce runoff of sediment, phosphorus and other pollutants to Mille Lacs Lake.
