Faribault County, Brush Creek Watershed

Faribault County, MN | Water

Overview

ISG assisted the Faribault Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) and the Drainage Department in their partnership to identify the most critical locations to cost effectively implement best management practices (BMP) in a targeted drainage system within the Brush Creek sub-watershed, County Ditch 64 (CD 64). ISG provided cost estimates for this project, which was recently awarded a Clean Water Fund grant to be used in combination with an awarded federal grant and will provide cost share to implement 20 near-system and upland BMPs, including: over 24 grade stabilization structures, several grassed waterways, and a water and sediment control basin. ISG is also designing rock riffle structures and bank stabilization. It is estimated that these identified high priority critical resource points will reduce pollution loading to by 176 tons of sediment per year and 203 pounds of phosphorus per year.


Opportunity

Due to a trusted relationship built on previous projects, the public agency partnership required engineer-generated cost estimates for project development and grand funding applications.

Solution

ISG’s partnership with the Faribault SWCD and the Drainage Department provided the extension of staff necessary for a limited scope project.
