Document Description
This project works with local livestock owners to implement Best Management Practices (BMPs) 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 types of BMPs to be implemented at these locations are paddock covers, roof runoff structures (gutter & downspouts), subsurface drain (french drain), structures for water control (dissipaters), heavy use area protection (surface treatment), waste storage (concrete manure bunkers and compost bins), filter strips and fencing.
