ARRA Pass Through Project
List of landowners and Operators
The objectives of the study described in this report are to characterize land use in the watershed and asses the risk of sediment loss and phosphorus delivery from agricultural lands.
Datasheet showing chemistry, sedimentation, and reach slopes.
This project involved farm inventories to identify sediment source reduction to the level required by the TMDL. Individual field-level management practices will be identified to reach the prescribed sediment loss goals. Identification of funding sources will also be completed as part of the activities. DNR will complete water quality monitoring in the streams to track water quality changes under existing monitoring protocols using separate funding sources.
Source identification, load estimates and reduction goal development -- Silver Spring, Cherry Branch, and Apple Branch sub-watersheds
Contract for county staff to conduct on-site assessments in the Silver Spring, Cherry Branch, and Apple Branch sub-watersheds to develop TMDLs for these impaired waters.
