Project Overview

The goal of the Pomme de Terre River Association (JPB) is to improve local water resources within the watershed through targeted voluntary efforts and build strong relationships with local landowners, producers, and citizens. Utilizing the State's first Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy, the JPB has targeted and identified specific areas and activities required for marked water quality improvement. These include the implementation of selected BMPs in specific watershed areas: 11 water and sediment control basins, riparian buffers, enrollment of 555 acres of Conservation Reserve Program buffer and wetland practices, 5 shoreline protection and stabilization projects, as well as 20 rain gardens, 5 grade stabilization projects, a livestock waste impoundment closure, and a cattle exclusion incentive. In total, these practices will annually keep 2411 tons of sediment and 1638 pounds of phosphorus from entering surface waters in the watershed.
