Current Project: Abner Bell Wetland Restoration

As part of a Water Quality Initiative-Targeted Demonstration Watershed Project, this project will filter storm water from the 160 acre urban and agricultural watershed prior to entering Little Storm Lake. The constructed wetland project will provide a means to slow water inflow, filter nutrients and sediment, and provide a mechanism for periodic maintenance.

Funded by a grant to the City of Storm Lake from the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, this project will provide substantial environmental lift through improved water quality input to Little Storm Lake. The project Landscape and Restoration Plan includes replanting of native tree, forb, and grass species.
