Advancing Nutrient Reduction in the Rock Creek Watershed




Grant award

Total project

This project will enhance existing collaborative efforts to improve water quality and reduce nutrient loss in the Rock Creek Watershed in the Upper Cedar River Watershed. Working from a watershed plan developed by farmers and stakeholders, the effort will deliver installation assistance for edge-of-field practices, specifically bioreactors and saturated buffers. Once complete, the watershed will have the largest concentration of these practices in Iowa. This effort will serve as a pilot site for new and innovative ways to expand implementation of these practices in other areas of the state.
