The Rice Creek Watershed District (RCWD) recently received a $3 million grant from the Clean Water Fund which will be used to improve the water quality in Long Lake.
The grant, which comes from the Minnesota Legacy Fund, will be used for various projects intended to curb pollution entering Rice Creek and surrounding waters that feed Long Lake, focusing on sediments and phosphorus, which cause algae blooms. The long-term goal is to reduce the pollution in the lake by 40 percent.
