MPCA 319 Cost Share Funds 2009-2013
The TMDL report for the Long Prairie River was approved by the EPA in 2005, and the implementation portion began in 2006. The implementation is a cooperation effort between the MPCA, Todd and Douglas Counties, Todd and Douglas SWCDs, the Local Water Management Coordinators in each County, and a developing partnership with municipalities, industry and private landowners.
These funds have been used to: install best management practices, monitor the Long Prairie River and tributaries and for the assessment of water samples collected. Funding is still available: contact Todd SWCD if you have questions or a project you would like to complete.
Clean Water Legacy Funding
Swan River Watershed
BWSR Clean Water Fund Competitive Grants 2011-2012
In an effort to reduce excess sediments and pollutants from entering surface waters we will be implementing best management practices on lakeshore properties and feedlots within the watershed.
Planned projects include: Shoreland stabilization and restoration, river and lake bank stabilization, storm water controls, native plantings, non-point run-off controls and livestock waste management projects. Work on these projects will begin in the Spring of 2011 and will be completed by Winter 2012.
The overall goal of this project is to improve water quality within the watershed and continue to keep the Swan River de-listed from the MPCA’s Impaired Waters List. Success of this project will be measured by load reduction calculations and any subsequent water quality data that is collected by the lake associations.

BWSR Clean Water Fund Competitve Grants 2012-2014
Projects were ranked on a state-wide basis to determine their priority level. Three projects in Todd County were selected, one filterstip project and two ag waste filterstip combination projects. The environmental benefits of these projects are the properly collected animal waste and land applying it at agronomic rates reduces nutrient run-off from fields to surface waters.
