The Clearwater River Watershed District is actively pursuing grant opportunities for TMDL Implementation Projects. Listed below are the projects currently in the grant application process.
Lake Betsy Hypolimnetic Nutrient Reduction Project
The project would withdraw nutrient-rich water from the hypolimnion (the lowest layer of lake water) of Lake Betsy, and using the water to irrigate the nearby farm fields. This would permanently remove an estimated 480 pounds of phosphorous annually and would reduce fertilizer application of nearby agricultural land.
