About

Grant award
$354,000

Total project
$713,000

Description
ACWA and partners are leading a demonstration and implementation project in the Elk Run watershed to target and showcase both in-field and edge-of-field practices that reduce nutrient loss to surface waters in Sac, Carroll 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.
