Rerouting the Pomme de Terre River

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, has just released the latest update on their Marsh Lake Ecosystem Restoration Project, located near Ortonville, Minnesota.

Contractors for the St. Paul District’s restoration program built up the ice thickness to create a crossing site for hauling excavated soil, an effort that saves nearly seven miles per trip.

The restoration plan includes rerouting the Pomme de Terre River to its historic channel and constructing a drawdown structure and a fish passage at the Marsh Lake Dam.

At less than 5 percent of the average cost for a habitat restoration project of this size, this project is expected to provide significant returns in environmental and habitat restoration benefits.

The Corps is working in partnership with the Upper Minnesota River Watershed District, as its non-federal sponsor, as well as other external stakeholders such as the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, to ensure the project’s success.
