Project Overview

Ramsey County has 3,500+ acres tied to 358 faith organizations and 304 schools. On average, these properties contribute 1 billion gallons of stormwater runoff, 3,000 lbs of phosphorus, and 1,000 tons of sediment to our local water bodies. The Ramsey Conservation District (RCD), working with community partners and Watershed Districts/Water Management Organizations, will install 6-12 stormwater best management projects that will help protect and improve water quality of surrounding lakes. The installed practices will reduce an estimated 3.25 million gallons (10 ac-ft) of stormwater runoff, 9 lbs of phosphorous, and 2.5 tons of sediment annually.

The RCD has targeted properties that are within a subwatershed of a Total Maximum Daily Load or within a completed Subwatershed Assessment. This unique program focuses on engaging groups through the installation of exceptionally visible and community accessible raingardens, green roofs, or other stormwater BMPs that help reduce stormwater runoff.
