Project Overview

This project will help to improve the water quality of Lake of the Woods by providing local staff with the resources necessary for implementing best management practices that will reduce erosion in drainage ditches. The Lake of the Woods Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) will assist the County in developing a process for inventory and inspection of ditches. Public drainage is critical to the local economy and proper drainage management is critical to water quality protection. The SWCD will also conduct field work and GIS analysis to complete: a Public Waters buffer inventory; water quality impact ranking of ditches within two miles of Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River or one mile of a public water; and inventory of approximately 350 miles of ditches in the northern portion of the county which has the highest amount of agricultural pressures.
