Project Title & Description
Yellow River Watershed Improvement Project
This project will assess the mainstream and tributaries of the Yellow River for activity of erosion on stream banks and establish priorities based upon severity and impact on the fishery. These will also be analyzed for active gullies and prioritized for grade stabilization structures based upon severity and impact on the fishery. All sites receiving cost share for manure management systems plus five additional critical sites will have a Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plan prepared. Newsletters will be sent to all watershed landowners once per year, and a detailed analysis of one subwatershed will be conducted using a new computer and Geographic Information Systems equipment being developed by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
