North Raccoon Farm to River Partnership
ACWA and partners are leading a demonstration and implementation project in the North Raccoon watershed to target and showcase both in-field and edge-of-field practices that reduce nutrient loss to surface waters. The North Raccoon Farm to River Partnership project, formerly named the Elk Run project, has expanded it's coverage area in 2018 to include areas of Sac, Carroll, Greene and Calhoun Counties. The project will establish a one-on-one dialogue with farmers and landowners in the watershed to discuss opportunities to incorporate and build on conservation measures on their farms. Activities will include outreach events to highlight various technologies that significantly reduce loss of nutrients while maintaining the productive capability of cropland in the watershed.
