Signup for Rock Creek Watershed Management Practices

Rock Creek Watershed Map
The Rock Creek Watershed Management Project would like to announce a 319 cost-share program for farmers and landowners in the Rock Creek Watershed in Winston and Cullman Counties. This project will help producers make farm improvements and also reduce runoff and prevent harmful bacteria from reaching local streams and creeks by installing best management practices (BMPs).
Practices to be funded include tree planting, grass planting, watering troughs, weed management in pastures and hayfields, feeding areas, cross fencing, riparian fencing, stream crossings, dry stacks and dead bird disposal systems. Applications will be funded on a first come basis. Sign up for the project will begin on September 6th and end September 16th. Applications will be available at the Cullman, Winston and Hamilton USDA Offices. For more info call Wade Hill at (205) 921-3103 EXT 3, or Mike Henshaw at (205) 489-5376.
A description of available practices is located at this link.
