Reducing Stormwater Impacts through Community Partnerships in Aitkin County
Phosphorus Reduced = 29 LBS/YR, and Sediment = 7 TONS/YR.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
The Aitkin County Soil and Water Conservation District will partner with local lake associations and other eligible community partners to reduce the impacts of storm water runoff and retain water on the land. We will implement a mini-grant program that will install rain gardens and native vegetation buffers along shorelines using deep-rooted native vegetation that will filter runoff, promote infiltration, and control stormwater runoff and soil erosion.
