A note about the LSWC’s Watershed Resiliency Funding

The LSWC has grant funds available to help landowners implement management practices that lead to improved watershed health. We can cost share on eligible project components at 50/50 up to $20,000 per project.

Eligible activities could include:

  • Off stream watering systems, or other water source developments in conjunction with riparian or wetland fencing.
  • Small scale water course crossings (culverts, or small bridges that span bank to bank)
  • Revegetation of riparian areas (native species) to enhance health and reduce run off potential.
  • Small scale erosion control that will reduce sediment input into water bodies.

Please reach out to Meghan or Kate at the LSWC office to talk more about your ideas.
