Bacon Creek Watershed Council
The Bacon Creek Watershed Council will meet 6 p.m. (central time) March 25 at Bonnieville City Hall, 7775 N. Dixie Hwy., Bonnieville. The group will discuss the agricultural best management practices that have been installed in the watershed area. There will also be updates on the septic repair and replacement and pump out programs. For more information, contact Tessa Edelen at email@example.com or (502) 589-8008.
A four-week Conservation Reserve Program general sign-up begins May 20 and ends on June 14. Producers with expiring contracts or producers with environmentally sensitive land are encouraged to evaluate their options under CRP.
In addition to erosion control, CRP provides significant water quality benefits including reduced nutrients and sediment loadings and adverse consequences associated with floods as well as expanded and enhanced wildlife habitat. For more information, visit www.fsa.usda.gov or call 765-2702.
