Water Quality Planning

Water Quality Ranch Plans  are being written in 2012-13 with interested landowners.    These plans are expected to address water quality impairments as well as other related natural resource concerns.  These plans will be given to landowners, and not stored at the RCD office.

To schedule a field visit or to discuss the planning process in general, contact the RCD office.    Ranch or farm plans focused to help identify and  document water quality improvement projects that have been completed and/or are needed are being offered on a limited basis.  Information taylored for each ranch will be part of the planning with an emphasis on photo monitoring techniques and tailwater neighborhoods.

Ranch plans can be developed for a group or ranch by others or with the help of the RCD.  Anyone who wants to put a plan together on their own can do so with our template, and your maps and pictures.

Projects developed through this planning process may be eligible for funding through the RCD.
