Kittson County Drainage Ditch Inventory and Inspection
Soil Erosion and Drainage Law Compliance 2014
Drainage ditch inventory
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
This project will provide a means of identifying and prioritizing areas in the Two Rivers Watershed District (TRWD) and the Kittson County Ditch system to implement conservation practices that reduce overland runoff contaminant loadings contributing to water quality impairments. Flow paths, in conjunction with land use and soils information, will be used to analyze the potential for contaminant loading. This information will be available to Kittson County Ditch Authorities, landowners, resource managers and others. The TRWD and Kittson County Highway Department will use the inventory to help enforce their authority to install practices where needed. Installation of these practices will help restore and protect surface water quality and supplement local efforts to sustain clean water in Minnesota.
