Lewis and Clark River Riparian Planting Project

CSWCD is partnering with a local landowner in 2017 to plant riparian areas along the Lewis and Clark River. Fencing at a set back of 40′-50′ from the river will allow the native plants to establish and grow without grazing pressure. The planting will help stabilize eroding river banks and filter runoff from pasture operations. The project will lead to better water quality and habitat along the Lewis and Clark.

Manure Storage Construction

Construction has begun on the Peterson Lane Manure Storage building. Adequate manure storage facilities help prevent sediment, nutrient, and bacterial pathogen runoff into local waterways. This project is located in the Lewis and Clark River watershed, therefore it will contribute to improved water quality for this important county water resource.
