Accelerating BMP Implementation in Rock County Watersheds for Turbidity Impaired Waters
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
The Rock County Soil and Water Conservation District/Land Management will build upon terrain analysis products developed by a Rock River Watershed 2013 BWSR grant and extend the data products to include additional water quality, Best Management Practices (BMP) suitability, BMP effectiveness, and BMP value datasets. This project will also extend this analysis to the remainder of Rock County, specifically Mud Creek, Beaver Creek and Split Rock Creek which are all listed for turbidity impairments. The outcome of this grant will be GIS datasets, summary maps, and a technical report describing the suitability for BMP placement, effect of targeted implementation on the priority resources, and the measurable cost-effectiveness of pursuing opportunities to implement BMPs.
