Plans to control sediment erosion and bacteria levels in Miljala Channel and tributary.
The Rock Lake Improvement Association would like to do additional data collection and analysis to help determine more precisely the sources of sediment, bacteria and nutrient pollution from the Miljala subwatershed to Rock Lake, as a followup to a previous grant. Bed load sampling will determine the annual quantity of sediment entering the channel, which must be known to determine a maintenance program for the management practice that may be selected; bacterial testing will determine the source of fecal bacteria in the channel, topographic survey, wetland delineation and inventory of birds, mammals and herbivores will provide more detail for the plan to remediate the problem. The Association is sharing results via their public meetings and are working closely with property owners in the watershed as well.
