Project Overview

The Accelerated Water Quality Project Implementation Program will increase the connection between landowners, local government units and the landscape to accelerate efforts addressing non-point source loading to surface waters throughout the Red River Valley Conservation Service Area. This program will provide partners and landowners a precise understanding of their resource concerns and target outreach efforts to the portions of the landscape with the greatest resource need by increasing the GIS capabilities Local Government Units (LGUs) in the Red River Valley while promoting use of the International Waters Institutes's Water Quality Decision Support Tool. Using GIS will allow LGUs to examine feasibility, deliver preliminary design and cost estimates. This will bolster the efficiency and responsiveness of partners and LGUs when responding to landowner inquiries. It will also allow landowners and planners to instantly estimate the water quality impacts of potential projects on an individual, collective or watershed basis.
