SOUTHWEST BADGER R C & D: LMI-Yellowstone Lake Watershed Improvement

Purpose

Southwest Badger Resource Conservation & Development Council, Inc.in cooperation with Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the WI Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will significantly reduce the amount of sediment and nutrients entering Yellowstone Lake through installation of conservation best management practices (BMPs). The 25% matching sponsor share of the costs of this project will be payments made by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) for cost sharing with landowners for installation of BMPs and in-kind labor costs and fringe benefit costs of the Lafayette County NRCS Conservation Technician providing technical assistance to survey, design, and install BMPs in the Yellowstone Lake Watershed. This project has four goals: 1) Reduce sediment delivery to Yellowstone Lake from upland sources by 3,300 tons per year. 2) Reduce Phosphorus delivery to the lake from non-point sources by 2,735 lbs./yr. 3) Reduce soil erosion to ? "T" or less on all pasture land in the watershed. 4) Improve and develop wildlife cover throughout the Yellowstone watershed. As a condition of grant approval, the project sponsor agrees to submit quarterly reports made on progress toward the above goals. Payment request can be made no more often than on the same quarterly schedule as the progress reports. The reports will describe efforts to meet the goals and summarize the number of landowner contacts, location and description of practices being proposed, summary of practices installed, and effectiveness of practices installed. Progress reports are due April 15th (for the Jan. - March quarter), July 15th, October 15th, and January 15th. The January 15th year-end report should include a summary of the year?s activities. Electronic copies will be made available upon request of all final reports and maps. A full description of the project and its scope is available in the grant application, which is a part of this agreement.
