Project Achievements

Description of Project Achievements to date: 

The Project has thus far conducted an informational meeting for approximately 50 landowners and producers on Livestock Winter Feeding Sites. We have provided information about the project by participating in the Geary County Range Tour and through a series of stakeholder meetings held through the watershed. We have provided cost-share for the installation of a native grass buffer around the wellheads of Morris County RWD #1 which are located at the bottom of the watershed. These wells provide water to nearly 1200 homes throughout Morris and Geary County. In conjunction with the other WRAPS in Geary County we sponsored a "Test Your Well Night" at the Geary County Fair.
