 Rapid Creek Watershed Project Receives Funding

The Johnson County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) recently was awarded a grant of $247,650 from the Iowa Watershed Improvement Review Board for a project to address water quality issues in Rapid Creek.
 
The Johnson County Soil and Water Conservation District is a partnership among conservationists and soil technicians from the Johnson County government, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS) that provides leadership for the enhancement of the county’s natural resources and quality of life. Johnson County’s Soil and Water Conservation Specialist Kate Giannini secured the funding. “Our project will address water quality issues by implementing best management practices, funding a coordinator, and providing education and outreach to landowners,” said Giannini. For more information about this project click here.
