Lower Pipestem Creek
319 Watershed Project
Comes to a Close

 The Lower Pipestem Creek Watershed Project began in April 2002 and came to a close at the end of 2010.  The project saw installation of Best Management Practices on over 27% of the watershed area.  The practices included Ag-Waste System updates,  no-till, rotational grazing projects including over 120 miles of fence installed, prescribed grazing and riparian easements among a host of other practices.  The watershed project was able to partner with many other  agencies in order to provide producers an additional avenue of funding and resources in grazing plans and practices.
