Project Overview

This project is a cooperative initiative between the Prior Lake Spring Lake Watershed District, the City of Prior Lake, and the Scott Soil and Water Conservation District to implement on-the-ground Best Management Practices (BMPs) that will protect and improve water quality in Spring, Upper Prior and Lower Prior Lakes, water resources of local, regional, and state significance. Spring and Upper Prior Lakes are both impaired and have a completed Total Maximum Daily Load and Implementation Plan. Lower Prior is not impaired; however, ensuring this status by implementing projects that maintain and improve water is a very high priority, particularly in light of ever-increasing recreational uses and land development pressure. This project will implement 30 to 35 BMPs by providing a source of cost share incentives to landowners. These BMPS will include shoreline buffers, waterways, filter strips, native grasses/prairie, and other practices that decrease phosphorus loading and runoff from agricultural and residential sources.
