[ARCHIVED] Northeast St. Cloud Sediment Reduction Project

Picture and word graphic about NE St. Cloud sediment reduction

The Northeast drainage area is a significant source of sediment discharge to the St. Cloud sections of the Mississippi River. The watershed affected is part of the City of St. Cloud’s drinking water source water protection area. The City, working with the State of Minnesota and Benton County, is investing in projects and programs to implement sediment reduction efforts and enhance the quality of the Mississippi River.

The Northeast St. Cloud Area consists of 367 acres where stormwater runoff drains into the Mississippi River primarily through a 96" outfall pipe. About 50% of the area is industrial and commercial land uses.

 Before the Northeast Water Quality Improvement Plan was implemented, stormwater runoff drained  to the Mississippi River untreated. After ten years and seven completed projects, 33,000 pounds of sediment are being removed from the area annually.

 With additional implementation, strong partnerships, and continued funding, the entire sediment reduction goal can be reached by year 2029.
