Project Details

PDTRA will use funding to carry out goals stated in the Comprehensive Watershed Management Plan. PDTRA has identified 5 priority areas to focus sediment & phosphorus reduction goals: Northern Lakes, Christina/Pelican Lakes, Pomme de Terre River Lakes Chain, Pomme de Terre River Corridor, & Drywood Creek. Planned practices include but are not limited to: water & sediment control basins, alternative tile intakes, waste pit closures, grade stabilizations, livestock exclusions, shoreline restorations & stabilizations, & cover crops. In Northern Lakes there will be 7 structural BMPs (reduce P by 9.0 lb/yr), 1 waste pit closure (reduce P by 75 lb/yr), 3 shoreline BMPs (reduce P by 0.6 lb/yr), & 60 acres of non-struct. BMPs (reduce P by 8.4 lb/yr). In Christina/Pelican Lakes there will be 6 structural BMPs (reduce P by 8.0 lb/yr), 1 waste pit closure (reduce P by 75 lb/yr), 16 shoreline BMPs (reduce P by 3.2 lb/yr), & 80 acres of non-struct. BMPs (reduce P by 11.2 lb/yr). In Pomme de Terre Lakes Chain, there will be 1 shoreline BMP (reduce P by 0.2 lb/yr). In Pomme de Terre River Corridor there will be 74 structural BMPs (reduce P by 88.8 lb/yr & sed by 495.8 ton/yr), & 50 acres of non-struct. BMPs (reduce P by 7.0 lb/yr & sed by 45.0 ton/yr). In Drywood Creek there will be 30 structural BMPs (reduce P by 36.0 lb/yr & sed by 189.0 ton/yr). Watershed wide, plans include 2 structural BMPs (reduce P by 2.6 lb/yr & sed by 13.0 ton/yr), 20 acres of non-struct. BMPs (reduce P by 2.8 lb/yr & sed by 16.0 ton/yr), at least 1 field day, 1 public workshop, 1 advisory group meeting, & development of a project tracking database. As a secondary benefit, cover crops will help achieve part of our altered hydrology 10-year goal. PD/TA, Edu & Outreach, & Grant Admin funds are needed to implement practices, engage landowners, & coordinate spending.
