Anoka Conservation District - Legislative Directed Funds - 2011
Anoka Conservation District
A direct appropriation of $400,000 in FY 2010 and $600,000 in FY2011 for the Anoka Conservation District (ACD) is for the metropolitan landscape restoration program for water quality and improvement projects in the seven-county metro area.
The goal of the program is to improve water quality in locally identified high-priority water resources. ACD is working with other metro-area local government units to fully utilize program cost-share funds and to leverage local funds to install the most cost-effective practices available to treat stormwater runoff. Assessments developed as part of this program will include identifying site-specific best management practices for pollutant and stormwater volume load reduction estimates, installation cost estimates, and long-term operation and maintenance cost estimate.
