Water Quality

Volunteers restore a section of West Foster Creek on Make a Difference Day 2017

Water Quality Improvement Program

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.

We want to hear about your project! If you have concerns about stream reaches on your property or want to restore riparian areas and reap the benefits of restoration, please contact Aaron Rosenblum, or complete the form below. 

The Benefits of Riparian Restoration:

 

Protect stream banks to reduce erosion and the loss of your property downstream

 

Funding is available for off-stream water sites and fencing

 

Improve forage quality

 

Improve fish and wildlife habitat

 

Combat noxious weed invasion

 

Increase your property value
