Lambert Lake Pond and Meander Conference Recognition

The Lambert Lake Pond and Meander was one of three finalists for the project of the year at the Minnesota Association of Watershed Districts (MAWD) annual conference in December 2021. VLAWMO is honored to have been recognized along with two other outstanding water-quality improvement projects.

The Lambert Lake Pond and Meander includes sheetpile replacement for flood control and meander construction to restore natural stream-like curves to a ditch and reconnect the floodplain for water treatment. Project construction and restoration was completed during winter and spring 2021.

VLAWMO staff and the lead project engineer from SEH also presented about the project during the annual MAWD conference. This presentation provided an opportunity for staff to share this project with other watersheds across the state. Read more about the project and see photos of the construction at the project page.

Remote Camera Activity:

Remote camera monitoring pre, during, and post construction shows successful reproduction and dispersal of young river otters. River otters are indicators of water and habitat quality. Remote cameras provided an addition to water-quality monitoring and automated flow monitoring that VLAWMO does on Lambert Creek.
