Document Description
The project entails development of a full program of Low Impact Development-type management practices that reduce sediment load and other pollutants from small rural parcels, especially those with confined livestock. The project is envisioned to include six (6) major components: Assemble and Develop Library References; Develop an Education/Outreach Program; Development of a series of Landowner Workshops; Provision of Technical Assistance to landowners; Development of a non-regulatory Cost-share Program; and Implementation of Demonstration and Pilot Water Quality enhancement Projects. Up to 10 priority sites (an estimated 50 to 100 total acres) will be selected among livestock facility applicants to implement water quality BMP projects. Specific BMPs implemented, and water quality improvements will vary based on site need and projects selected. These may include practice changes or minor infrastructure improvements. Example BMPs include: use of vegetative swales and buffer strips, manure bunkers and other containment practices, installation of gutters, road and trail improvement, reestablishment of vegetation, and taking high use areas off line in winter.
