Wild Rice River Restoration Project
Projects and Practices 2014
Calculation based on TMDL plan
This project resulted in estimated reductions of 1,425 lb. of phosphorus per year, 929 tons of sediment per year, and 926 fewer tons of soil lost annually.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
This project builds on the successful implementation of previous work, installing 29 water and sediment control basins and 25 acres of vegetative filter strips within the priority Marsh Creek watershed to reduce sediment loading into the Wild Rice River, which is currently not meeting water quality standards for sediment.
