After successful completion and coordination of our Chesapeake Bay Stewardship funded $47,000 assessment and design project, we are overjoyed to announce that working in collaboration with the EPCD, WV Conservation Agency, WV Department of Environmental Protection, the Chesapeake Bay Program, and others, we secured over $400,000 in funding and the project has now been completed. The restoration is located at the corner of Winchester Grade and Spriggs Roads, Morgan County, WV. It is estimated that the 612 linear foot project is introducing 125 tons of sediment and associated nutrients annually into the Sleepy Creek, Potomac River, and Chesapeake Bay Watersheds. In 2018, with the increased rainfall, this number was even greater.
Below is a new Field Doc mapping project that when complete will show the best management practices implemented on the Edmiston property and the calculations of nutrient and sediment reductions for each practice according to the Bay model. Field Doc is part of the Water Watch program provided by the Downstream Project.
