Project Overview

The Sauk River Chain of Lakes Community Partners Area has many lakes that are not meeting state water quality standards or are in jeopardy of not meeting standards and are in desperate need of runoff reduction strategies. The Stearns County Soil and Water Conservation District is eager to work with willing sponsors within the project area to educate, inform and expand the conservation culture to assist in siting and implementing water quality projects on the landscape. It is a priority for the local area as documented in local and state water plans to work on water quality projects within this major economic resource in central Minnesota. Stearns County SWCD will work with the project sponsors to develop an outreach program that results in overall education and awareness as well as implementation of identified priority runoff retention practices to improve and protect water quality.
