Crow River Gully Stabilization to Reduce Turbidity Phase Three
315 tons of sediment/year and 350 lbs of phosphorus/year
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
The Wright Soil and Water Conservation District has partnered with the Crow River Organization of Water and the Natural Resources Conservation Service on phase three of a comprehensive sediment reduction project that focuses on stabilizing seven of the most active gully erosion sites on the North Fork Crow River. These seven areas were chosen due to the high level of turbidity and low dissolved oxygen within that stretch of the North Fork Crow River, which has led to biological and turbidity impairments. This project will drastically reduce the amount of sediment and phosphorus being exported from this targeted stretch of the Crow River.
