AG - Best Management Practices (BMPs)

Protecting and improving the quality of Wyoming County’s water resources is one of the main objectives of the Soil and Water Conservation District. The implementation of Best Management Practices (BMPs) throughout the County are aimed at decreasing transfer of soil and nutrients to our water resources. The Wyoming County Soil and Water Conservation District provides technical assistance in the planning and design of erosion control practices and many agricultural BMPs. All of these activities help to protect our water resources. Along with technical assistance to land owners, the Soil and Water Conservation District has been involved in research on some of the area lakes and streams, attempting to observe the effects of installed BMPs.
