Bone Lake Northeast Wetland Restoration
This project will remove accumulated phosphorus-rich sediment from the northern portion of a wetland directly adjacent to Bone Lake that had a history of receiving direct livestock manure runoff from the dairy farm barnyard located on the same northern part of the wetland. This project is estimated to reduce watershed phosphorus loads to Bone Lake by 15 lb/yr (or 30% of the remaining 50 lb/yr reduction needed for Bone Lake to achieve the District long-term goal of 30 ug/L).
This project was identified as a result of the Bone Lake Legacy Load Investigation Study.
The CLFLWD received a $171,200 Clean Water Fund (CWF) grant from the Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) for this project. View the CWF grant application here.
