As plans begin to come together for a new project in the Vermillion River corridor, one thing is abundantly clear – developers are going to need to invest heavily in streambank restoration and erosion control to help protect the area. Dakota County, where a majority of the project is set to take place, has made clear that they don’t intend to work on the project alone.
The Vermillion River Corridor
Dakota County recently released a 101-page draft outlining what would be needed to help protect the Vermillion River corridor. The project’s intentions are quite apparent; the first guiding principle in the draft states that protecting the corridor today is necessary for future generations.
The county has limited financial resources, which means they are going to ask local landowners to help do their part to protect the corridor. The county plans to work with landowners to:
• stabilize existing streambanks
• take erosion control measures
• create new buffer zones
• adding natural curves to the river again
