Mille Lacs Soil and Water Conservation District

The Mille Lacs Soil and Water Conservation district has Cost Share funds currently available to help land owners install conservation practices that improve and protect water quality. Up to 75% of project costs may be reimbursed after a qualifying practice has been completed. Approved construction practices may include activities that:

control nutrient runoff

stabilize critical eroding areas

divert runoff to protect and improve water quality

reduce wind erosion

control gully, rill or sheet erosion

protect shoreline from erosion

control storm water runoff

protect surface and ground water quality

Cost Share funds can be used for stream or lakeshore restorations, agricultural waste management or abandoned well sealing. Through this program the SWCD can provide technical and financial assistance to landowners that are interested in solving water quality issues on their land. Call 320-983-2160 for more information.
