Just upstream of the Oak Glen Creek corridor stabilization, a stormwater pond expansion and enhancement with an iron enhanced sand filter (IESF) will protect the stabilization and further reduce sediment and phosphorus discharge to the Mississippi River. The project is a partnership with a private company. Currently, very little stormwater infrastructure exists in the 573 acre Oak Glen Creek subwatershed, It will reduce annual sediment discharge to the Mississippi River by 33% and total phosphorus by 31%. Funding for this project is provided by the City of Fridley and a Clean Water Legacy grant.
