Document Description
Replace up to 8 existing water troughs that currently overflow onto unprotected soils creating turbid runoff. Troughs ae located in grassland areas on the ridge above even ephemeral creeks. The old troughs will be removed and recycled. A pad of gravel (18 ft x 18 ft) will be installed in the same location to hold the trough and keep mud from forming where cattle stand next to the trough. A new trough will be installed and water outflow will be altered to avoid overflows and direct any outflow into a pipe which will deposit the runoff a substantial distance from the trough area eliminating the mud. Troughs will have escape structures for small animals.
