Phosphorus Reduction Enhancements
Public Water 19022500

In 2013, the City of Apple Valley received a grant for improvements to pond EVR-P12  (Public Water 19022500) from the Board of Water and Soil Resources through its Clean Water Fund program. EVR-P12 is a major contributor of phosphorus to Long Lake which has been on the impaired waters list since 2002. The Long and Farquar Lakes TMDL calls for a reduction in phosphorus levels from EVR-P12 to meet water quality goals. Legacy Logo

Improvements to EVR-P12 will include installation of an iron enhanced sand filter (Minnesota Filter) and aluminum sulfate treatments (alum). The projects are predicted to reduce phosphorus contributions to Long Lake by 61 pounds per year, or about 24% of the watershed phosphorus reduction recommended. The project will take place over a three year period, beginning spring 2013 through December 2015.
