Improving Watershed Health through Agricultural-Municipal Partnerships
July 15, 2021
2:00 pm – 3:15 pm
Watersheds can benefit when municipal water treatment plants invest in conservation practices on nearby farms. These agricultural-municipal partnerships reflect a commitment to integrated planning across the complete water cycle with a strong emphasis on a highly collaborative and inclusive approach to watershed health improvement. By drawing on an integrated watershed approach, these partnerships unlock additional alternatives to address watershed health stressors and bring a broader array of watershed participants into the mix to craft solutions and take action for watershed health improvement. During the webinar, presenters from the City of Boise, Ohio’s Miami Conservancy District, and the Kansas Center for Agricultural Resources and the Environment will share their experiences and reflect on lessons learned from their agricultural-municipal partnerships aimed at improving watershed health.
