Project Overview

The Wright Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) will expand its partnership with its USDA partners; this will be the first time that SWCD staff will conduct compliance spot checks for USDA Highly Erodible Land plans. This activity will add a level of certainty that these plans are in compliance. The District has targeted the Silver Creek Watershed as a pilot area for this project because it offers a unique opportunity to address lakes that are impaired as well as lakes currently meeting state standards that are listed as a High Priority Protection Lakes in the Wright County Water Management Plan. This combination allows the District to enhance the water quality in both protection and restoration lakes. Silver Creek is also identified in the Mississippi River Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy process as a contributor of phosphorus.
