Side Inlet and Buffer Inventory
This project will result in an inventory and priority list of where inlet control and buffer strips are needed along a Judicial Ditch to reduce the nutrients, sediment and volume.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
The purpose of this project is to create an inventory and priority list of where inlet control and buffer strips are needed along Judicial Ditch 15 to reduce the nutrients, sediment and volume of water being transported by field tile. This will help protect landowner drainage needs, while focusing on applicable best management practices that will reduce on-field and in-channel peak flow erosion. This ditch system is the headwaters to Cokato Lake, which connects to the North Fork Crow River. The district will use this grant money to inventory 10.4 miles of Judicial Ditch 15 for areas that could benefit from side inlet control structures or buffer strips.
