Vermillion River Upper Mainstem, Pine Creek, and Lake Byllesby Sub-watershed Assessments
The result of this project will be 3 completed subwatershed analysis for subwatersheds with the Cannon and Vermillion Rivers.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
The purpose of this project is to complete subwatershed analysis for Cannon River and Vermillion River sub-watersheds to prioritize and target Best Management Practices based on cost-effectiveness with regard to pollutant reduction. This process is intended to proactively assist local water management and partner agencies in maximizing the value of each dollar spent to improve water quality in the respective rivers. Each subwatershed is primarily agricultural and rural practices will be evaluated through the subwatershed analysis process resulting in specific practices being identified and prioritized based on the cost effectiveness to remove pollutants.
