Project Description & Outcomes
This project removed 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 adjacent dairy farm barnyard. This project is estimated to reduce watershed phosphorus loads to Bone Lake by 15 lb/yr.
This project was identified as a result of the Bone Lake Legacy Load Investigation Study.
The CLFLWD received a Clean Water Fund (CWF) grant from the Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) for this project.
