Appropriation Language

$6,882,000 the first year and $12,618,000 the second year are for grants to protect and restore surface water and drinking water; to keep water on the land; to protect, enhance, and restore water quality in lakes, rivers, and streams; and to protect groundwater and drinking water, including feedlot water quality and subsurface sewage treatment system projects and stream bank, stream channel, shoreline restoration, and ravine stabilization projects. The projects must use practices demonstrated to be effective, be of long-lasting public benefit, include a match, and be consistent with total maximum daily load (TMDL) implementation plans, watershed restoration and protection strategies (WRAPS), or local water management plans or their equivalents. A portion of these funds may be used to seek administrative efficiencies through shared resources by multiple local governmental units.

Project Details

Eroding river banks contribute to the Mississippi River's turbidity impairments through direct loading of sediment and nutrients that degrade overall water quality, as well as aquatic and nearshore habitat. This project stabilizes approximately 500 linear feet of Mississippi River bank. The project designs will use bioengineering techniques whenever possible to create thriving near-shore habitat, naturalize the riparian zone, and complement the recently updated Mississippi River Corridor Critical Area (MRCCA) rules. This project will result in the reduction of up to 100 tons of sediment and 100 pounds of phosphorus annually.
