ISG Congratulates Heron Lake Watershed District (HLWD) on their recent grant award! Implementation of best management practices are targeted to improve water quality in South Heron Lake.
HLWD was awarded a $61,500 multi-purpose drainage management grant from the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) to support this portion of the South Heron Lake TMDL Implementation Plan from the Clean Water Fund. HLWD partnered with the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources, and the Jackson County Soil and Watershed Conservation District to develop and fund the project with an additional $126,500 in matching funds. Since landowners are responsible for the repair cost portion of projects, grant funding is utilized to pay for the improvement-related costs that are targeted on water quality improvements.
