Partnering
for Water
Silver Creek Project. The land-water nexus is being explored in this
pilot project, to improve water quality at a lower cost. In its third year,
NEW Water continued working with landowners in this 4,800-acre
watershed foray into Adaptive Management. Cover crops have been
planted, buffer strips and grassed waterways installed, and water
monitoring continued to capture the results.
Grazing. With partners in the Silver Creek watershed, a managed
grazing project was launched to determine water quality impacts to
the surrounding watershed. Preliminary results are promising.

2017 in Brown County to determine the impacts on
surrounding water quality.
