The Red Clay Project was a sediment erosion control demonstration project in the red clay area of Minnesota and Wisconsin. The counties of Douglas, Ashland, Bayfield and Iron in Wisconsin and Carlton county in Minnesota all participated in this activity. Many land management practices were installed and evaluated to see what soil erosion and related pollutants could be reduced from entering the surface waters of the Great Lakes basin. Institutional and educational techniques were also implemented and evaluated to see what methods would be most effective for controlling pollution from rural nonpoint sources.
