The board had complaints of erosion problems on Dunlin Road and Enchanted Loop. A representative of Todd Soil and Water came to discuss issues and plans to fix run off problems. Part of this area is a natural waterway thus water needs to flow through some areas. The township and the property owner will start with planting buffer strips and spraying the road. The township and Todd Co. Soil and Water will file for funding for erosion control to help pay for repairs and vegetation. The county engineer is busy and will not get to designing fixes for Emerald Trail or Dunlin Road until fall.
As a result of storms in May there is excess gravel in some ditches. The DNR contacted the township and the township has made plans to remove the washed out gravel.
The DNR also contacted the township about a property owner putting concrete and wood debris in ditch on 154th St. Supervisor talked to property owner and he will move debris.
In the road report spraying dust control requests are finished. Contractor has to wait for another load to come in before doing repair spraying.

The supervisors will be driving around for weed inspections. Morrison Line Road has a lot of thistle in the ditches. Supervisor will spray that area also.
