Project Overview

Calcareous fens such as the Savage Fen are fragile ecosystems existing only under a unique combination of soil type, hydrology, chemistry, and vegetation. The City of Savage is continuing efforts to protect this important ecosystem through this project. Two large ravines -Dakota Avenue and McColl's Bluff - discharge to the Fen, which was granted special status under the State's Wetlands Conservation Act. Both ravines are highly eroded and carry a significant amount of stormwater and sediment to the Savage Fen. Due to the sensitivity of this Fen, these ravines have been identified as a high priority in the City's Stormwater Management System Maintenance Plan. Significant pollutant reductions from the project are quantified.
