From Beginning To End: The Hudson Project
Before: River bank erosion caused by concentrated flow of urban runoff.
Construction: A drop pipe was installed that provides a stable path for the water to outlet into the Red Lake River and eliminate flow over the bank.
After: Financial assistance was provided through the State Cost-share Program.

“Funding provided by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture Noxious Weed
and Invasive Plant Grant and BWSR CWMA Program Grant”
