Wright SWCD Partners with Lake Associations to Apply Land Treatment
This purpose of this project is to implement 30 of the following best management practices: Stream-bank and shoreline restorations, prairie strip and buffer strips on highly erodible areas, critical seeding of perennial native species on vulnerable slopes, rotational grazing, exclusion fencing and alternative water sources.
This project resulted in an estimated annual reduction of 273 lbs of phosphorus, and 165 tons of sediment.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
This project will allow lake associations and other motivated groups to use their local landowner networks and site specific knowledge to effectively implement best management practices that fit within the greater context of Wright County's Water Management Plan.
