2015- Pomme de Terre WRAPS Implementation Plan
The Pomme de Terre River Association has targeted and identified specific areas and activities required for marked water quality improvement. 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. These practices in total will directly result in site-specific and watershed-dependent reductions of 17,801 tons of sediment and 17,784 pounds of phosphorous from entering surface waters yearly in the watershed. 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.
This project will result in the addition of a Regional Clean Water Forester to service Technical Service Areas 3 and 8.
This project resulted in an annual estimated reduction of 608 lbs of phosphorus and 441 tons of sediment.
