Assessing Effectiveness of Pond Sediment Removal for Phosphorus Management in Stormwater Ponds

Status:  Active
Project Start Date:  06/05/2024


Stormwater ponds are plentiful in Minnesota and can be useful in treating stormwater runoff. Some ponds, however, can re-release phosphorus. This project will investigate the effectiveness of sediment removal in improving stormwater quality and reducing phosphorus downstream. It will also explore if sediment should be treated to reduce phosphorus release during dredging.
