Drainage 14 Sediment Management for West Branch Rum River
The purpose of this project is to reduce the phosphorus loading to Diamond Lake through wetland restoration, water and sediment control basins, side inlet controls, and buffer strips. The reduction of phosphorus load associated with these practices is estimated to achieve 55 percent of the overall pollutant reduction goal.
An inventory of side inlet controls, buffer strips and storage and treatment needs was completed.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
This project will identify and prioritize opportunities to implement a multipurpose drainage management plan that will provide adequate drainage capacity, reduce peak flows and flooding and reduce erosion and sediment loading, improving water quality to the West Branch Rum River.
