Project Overview

Brown's Creek Watershed District (BCWD) has identified two neighborhoods that drain untreated stormwater directly to Long Lake, a recreational lake in Stillwater that has been listed as impaired for excess nutrients. By working with targeted residential landowners in the high priority neighborhoods, BCWD will install 10-15 best management practices to achieve measurable outcomes of 5 acre-feet of nutrient-rich stormwater infiltration,1 ton of total sediment and 6 pounds of total phosphorus removed from Long Lake per year.
