Document Description
This program works with local livestock owners to implement Best Management Practices on their private property. The BMPs focus on improving water quality by addressing manure and erosion management. These implementation projects will result in a decrease of nutrients, sediments, and pathogens making their way into area waterways. The BMPs to be implemented at these locations may include roof runoff structures (gutter & downspouts), subsurface drains and underground outlets, diversions (swales), structures for water control (dissipaters), heavy use area protection (surface treatment), waste storage (concrete manure bunkers and compost bins), managed grazing, use exclusion, filter strips, critical area and/or pasture planting, brush management, sediment basins, grade stabilization structures, and fencing.
