Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

This project will result in an inventory and priority list of where inlet control and buffer strips are needed along a Judicial Ditch to reduce the nutrients, sediment and volume.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The district acquired DrainageDB Software and an Acquire Mobile Tablet Device, and has been able to use the software to enter in over 100 inspections. This project has enabled the district to be more pro active and efficient in doing inspections targeting looking for sediment erosion issues along drainage systems and looking for opportunities to address them to improve water quality in the long term.

Project Overview

The Red Lake Watershed District will create an inspection database for 103E ditches under their drainage authority. The district will acquire a database software solution to conduct field inspections and to track ditch maintenance projects and use the software to facilitate compliance with state statutes. The project will also develop a process for completing the annual inspection and reporting requirements under Statue 103E. The project will lead to improving the district's data management capabilities and identify drainage system needs that will improve water courses that are impaired for turbidity.
