Little Rock Lake TMDL Implementation Project
This project is a continuation of a 2012 clean water fund grant. The purpose of this project is to continue implementation strategies at numerous sites to continue cleaning up Little Rock Lake.
This project resulted in estimated reductions of 5,653 lb. of nitrogen per year, 2,920 lb. of phosphorus per year, 1,723 tons of sediment per year, and 1,719 tons of soil loss per year
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
The Little Rock Lake Total Maximum Daily Load study has identified areas in the watershed where phosphorus reduction is needed and what best management practices need to be applied. This is a coordinated implementation effort with Benton and Morrison Soil and Water Conservation Districts and Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Little Rock Lake Association, the livestock industry and other partners to install best management practices at numerous sites to continue cleaning up Little Rock Lake.
