Crow River Gully Stabilization to Reduce Turbidity Phase Two
This project will reduce the amount of sediment (225 tons per year) and phosphorus (250 pounds per year) being exported from the targeted stretch of the Crow River by constructing grade stabilization structures and water and sediment control basins at the headward eroding tops of these gullies.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
The Wright Soil and Water Conservation District has partnered with the Crow River Organization of Waters (CROW) and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) on phase two of this comprehensive sediment reduction project to focus on stabilizing five of the most active gully erosion sites in targeted subwatersheds on the North Fork Crow River, as well as use the installed best management practices to help promote future conservation practices. These particular locations were chosen due to the high level of turbidity and low dissolved oxygen within that stretch of the North Fork Crow River. This project will drastically reduce the amount of sediment (225 tons per year) and phosphorus (250 pounds per year) runoff from the targeted stretch of the Crow River.
