Soil erosion (both water and wind) are contributing to the scouring and sloughing of stream banks which appear to be negatively impacting water quality and reducing water capacities. We think preventing sediment from reaching the water and reducing stream flashiness may help.
What we want:
We want to see our toes when standing in the water. To do this we must prevent soil from reaching the river via encouraging conservation tillage practices, installation of waterways, cover cropping, preserving riparian areas and encouraging other best management practices (BMPs).
