Project Overview

The Faribault County Soil and Water Conservation District Drainage Engineer will inventory public drainage ditches to identify priority systems and areas where erosion, sediment, and nutrients contribute to water quality degradation. Sites identified for potential side inlet control, buffer strip need, or water storage will be prioritized for landowner contact and follow through by seeking external funding opportunities. Planning will remain in conjunction with an established Redetermination of Benefits schedule and will continue work begun through Faribault County's Drainage Management Planning project through December 2016.
