Ditch 20 Wetland Restoration Feasibility Study to Benefit Downstream Water Quality
This project will result in a feasibility study that will produce strategies for wetland restoration and ditch hydrology changes in efforts to improve water quality in the nutrient impaired Typo and Martin Lakes.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
This feasibility study will produce strategies for wetland restoration and ditch hydrology changes to reduce the amount of phosphorus and solids that drain into Typo and Martin Lakes, the Sunrise River and St. Croix River. Total Maximum Daily Loads and other plans have identified this area as key for pollutant reduction, and the study will determine scope and effects of potential projects, allowing the district to prioritize those that will have the great impact on water quality.
