Public Meeting Pleasure Creek South Filter Project


Coon Creek Watershed District (CCWD) and the City of Coon Rapids hosted a virtual informational meeting on Thursday Sept. 9 to inform the community about a proposed water filter for Pleasure Creek. The project includes installation of a biochar and iron enhanced sand filter, which is funded through grants and CCWD. The filter would help reduce pollutants in Pleasure Creek.


The following video is the presentation CCWD presented virtually on Sept. 9.


What is a Biochar and Iron Enhanced Sand Filter (BIESF)?

A BIESF is a filtration practice that incorporates filtration media mixed with biochar and iron. The biochar removes E. coli, which is bacteria found in animal waste. The iron removes phosphorus, which is the nutrient that supports rapid algal growth and reproduction. Both E. coli and phosphorus have been identified as water quality problems in the Pleasure Creek watershed.
