2017 - Pomme de Terre WRAPS Implementation Plan
This project will result in a reduction of 15,000 tons of sediment/yr and 15,011 pounds of phosphorus/yr.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
The goal of the Pomme de Terre River Association (JPB) is to improve the local water resources within the watershed through targeted voluntary efforts and the building of strong relationships with local landowners, producers, and citizens. The Pomme de Terre River is currently not meeting state water quality for sediment. The purpose of this project is to strategically work towards a 53% sediment reduction goal at the mouth of the Pomme de Terre River based on a Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy document. The result of this project will result in edge of field reductions of 15,000 tons of sediment and 15,011 pounds of phosphorous from entering surface waters yearly in the watershed.
