Large-lake screening for future watershed protection efforts
This project is a cooperative effort between Crow Wing and Itasca County to contract with RMB Laboratories to generate 65 lake assessment/trend analysis reports. The watershed protection model is an innovative and proactive approach to water resource management which is geared towards prioritizing areas of concern, targeting implementation strategies, and measuring their effectiveness. These assessments are also useful and understandable tools for lake associations and the public.
This project is estimated to have an annual reduction of 41 tons of sediment delivered and 41 pounds of phosphorus delivered to CD8.
This project resulted in the installation of 28 preventative practices.
