A river rerouted: Step 1 in the Marsh Lake ecosystem restoration project
The St. Paul District, along with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the Upper Minnesota Watershed District, oversaw the rerouting of the Pomme de Terre River, near Ortonville, Minnesota, on Oct. 1. The river restoration is one of three project features as part of the Marsh Lake Ecosystem Restoration Project, which aims to improve habitat in the area. The other two features include a water control drawdown structure (currently under construction) and fish passage (coming soon).
