North Branch - Project # 1
About the Project # 1 - North Branch
Located in St. Joseph and Poppleton Townships, northeast of Lancaster, Minnesota, and built in the 1960's, this project was also a cooperative PL-566 project between the District, the Soil Conservation Service, the Kittson Soil and Water Conservation District, and the Minnesota DNR. This project installed 11.13 miles of channel improvements on two different legal ditch systems, two grade stabilization structures to provide erosion control, and one single purpose wildlife structure. The channel improvement measures provide protection from 10-year frequency discharges and help reduce damages from higher frequency discharges.
