Redwood River Turbidity Reduction Project - Clean Water Partnership (CWP)
The goal of this project is to continue best management implementation according to the Redwood River Phase II Implementation Plan (1999) and install phosphorus and total suspended solids (TSS) reducing conservation practices that will help achieve the Lower Minnesota River dissolved oxygen Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL), and the Minnesota River Turbidity TMDL. The proposed implementation of conservation practices include: water and sediment control basins, grassed waterways, grade stabilizations and streambank stabilizations. This project will focus on improving the turbidity and phosphorus impairments of the Redwood River specifically. Ongoing monitoring will provide data on measurable results as will data from the upcoming Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) beginning in 2017.
