Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

This project addresses the northeast St. Cloud drainage basin, an older part of town, with little to no stormwater treatment within the existing drainage system. The proposed projects are estimated to reduce sediment by approximately 11 tons which is 15% of the total drainage area loading.

Measurable Outcome(s)

This project resulted in estimated reductions of 5 lb. of phosphorus per year and 7 tons of sediment per year

Project Overview

This project addresses the northeast St. Cloud drainage basin, the highest priority in the St. Cloud Stormwater Management Plan. St. Cloud has observed and documented ongoing sediment loading to the Mississippi River from the 367 acre watershed. The project is also a companion to the Green Roofs Blue Waters program in which several sediment reduction BMPs are being identified and installed along the Mississippi River. These initiatives tie together as part of a larger effort to make significant improvements to the sedimentation problem in this reach of the river, an initiative called the Mississippi River Renaissance project. Installed practices are modeled to reduce TSS by 21,500 lbs, which is 15% of the total drainage area loading.
