Galena River PWS Plan - Nine Key Element Plan

Purpose

The Galena River Watershed is one of five watersheds selected statewide in 1979 as an area for funding. The Galena River Watershed was selected as a priority area because water quality is severely impacted by nonpoint sources, improvement in water quality is feasible through the installation of land treatment practices, and the watershed was locally selected as a critical area. The implementation program is focused on meeting the needs identified in the areawide water quality management program which has a long-term objective of fishable, swimmable waters, wherever possible by 1983.

Objective

The primary objective of the project is to reduce nonpoint source pollution to the surface water, and to enhance and protect water quality within the Galena River Watershed.

Outcome

Although many of the land treatment practices used to minimize pollution from nonpoint sources are similar to or the same as soil conservation or livestock management practices, the program will be evaluated on the basis of how well water resources are being improved and protected.
