  • Grant timeline March 2012 – December 2014
  • Grant dollars: $43,505  Match: $16,779  Total: $60,284
  • Since its establishment in 2005, the Middle Fork Crow River Watershed
  • District (MFCRWD) has made a concerted effort to establish productive, cooperative relationships with the agricultural community. Successful efforts to date include feedlot upgrades, sediment block installations, animal exclusions, and drainage water management. The proposed project entails a cooperative effort between Kandiyohi County and the MFCRWD to build on the slowly growing repertoire of District-installed agricultural best management practices within the Middle Fork Crow River Watershed. Under this proposal, more than 500 linear feet of woodchip bioreactors and 5 rock inlets will be installed. The project also includes effectiveness monitoring and the development and delivery of an agricultural best management practices tour to promote project results.
