Project Title & Description
Rifle River Watershed Nonpoint Implementation Project
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 111-88. Specifically, this Project will address the two highest pollutants of concern within the Rifle River watershed: sediment and nutrient loading. This will be accomplished by addressing the sources of pollution by implementing agricultural, streambank, road crossing, stormwater and permanent land protection best management practices. In addition, the existing watershed plan will be updated to meet current U.S. Environmental Protection Agency guidelines.
