The Upper Pit River Watershed Enhancement & Protection Project

The purpose of the Project is to improve water quality and aquatic habitat. This can be accomplished in many ways, some examples are: vegetation planting along streambanks for soil stabilization, riparian fencing for livestock management and off-stream watering stations. Benefits to the landowner = fish/wildlife enhancement and decreased soil erosion of your valuable pastures and farmable ground. With increasing state/federal attention on nonpoint source pollution (i.e. from agriculture, timber, grazing, etc.), it is important to demonstrate that a locally directed watershed management program can be effective.
