Research Project: Assessing the Watershed Scale Effects of Implementing Conservation Management Practices

Location: Soil Drainage Research

Project Number: 5080-13210-002-24-I
Project Type: Interagency Reimbursable Agreement

Start Date: Oct 1, 2017
End Date: Sep 30, 2021

Objective:
Assess the watershed scale impact of implementing best management practices in paired subwatersheds of the Blanchard River Watershed in Ohio.

Approach:
ARS in collaboration with the Cooperator will assess the watershed scale impacts of implementing best management practices to address water quality concerns in the Western Lake Erie Basin. Best management practices will be promoted in one watershed while leaving the other in prevailing practices. Nitrogen and phosphorus will be the primary nutrients of concern.
