Water is scarce in Douglas County, which makes the water we do have that much more important. FCCD is currently implementing riparian restoration projects throughout the county to address water quality issues. The projects are based on recommendations from the Watershed Management Plan for Moses Coulee and Foster Creek Watersheds WRIA 44 & 50. Our current projects involve planting riparian vegetation to improve the stream’s connection with the floodplain, increase stream shading, increase filtration, and decrease turbidity. We are currently working on developing a watershed scale restoration strategy for both WRIAs.
FCCD has developed a watershed scale riparian restoration strategy for WRIAs 44 and 50 based on the Douglas County Watershed Plan. We are currently planning projects for the 2018 season. If you have concerns about stream reaches on your property or want to restore riparian buffers to improve water quality, please complete the form below and send us a note or question. A staff member will contact you to follow up.
