Upper Big Walnut Creek Watershed

Under Construction

USDA Regional Conservation Practice Program (RCPP) Grant

The SWCD recently applied for and received a $1 million grant for water quality initiatives in the watershed.  The grant will have two segments -- 1) funding a bioreactor research project to remove nitrogen and phosphorous from subsurface (tile) drains before outleting into the stream; and 2) cost-share funds for a variety of conservation practices in the watershed.  We are still awaiting final details on the grant and will share them on this site soon.
