Red Lake Watershed District Project 134, Polk County Ditch 63
31 tons of sediment/year
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
The purpose of the project is to reduce the amount of sediment entering Burnham Creek, which is a tributary of the Red Lake River within the Red River Basin. The Red Lake River is classified as a source water protection area for the City of East Grand Forks and currently does not meet state water quality standards for sediment. The goal of this project is to install one grade stabilization structure within the channel which outlets into the Burnham Creek channel and two side water inlets with buffers. The proposed will stabilize the existing main channel and reduce sediment loading into Burnham Creek by 31 tons per year.
