This project will implement of 16 Water and Sediment Control Basins (WASCOBs), 28 Rain Gardens, 2 Shoreline/ Stream bank stabilization, 10 Waste Pit Closures, 1 Terrace Project, and the enrollment of 1900 acres into conservation practices.

In addition, a failing dam has been prioritized and targeted within the Drywood Creek sub-watershed and the removal will result in 42.57 tons sediment and 42.57 pounds phosphorus reductions.
