Headwaters Cedar Creek: Water Quantity and Quality Stewardship

Headwaters Cedar Creek: Water Quantity and Quality Stewardship

Overview

In 2017, HEI began a project collaboration to integrate the water quality and water quantity benefits of existing and planned conservation efforts to engage farmers.

Background

The Headwaters Cedar Creek, within the North Raccoon River Watershed, is the focus of an Iowa Water Quality Initiative and has a 12-digit HUC water quality plan. It will also be a focal area of a flood reduction planning effort.

The Project

HEI worked with agricultural partners and local governments to enhance data for targeting conservation, estimating water quality benefits of conservation, and developing a conservation investment guide. The work was presented as a multi-stakeholder workshop that included local farm leaders, local conservation staff, state officials, and non-governmental organization (NGO) partners.

  • Integration of water quantity and quality benefits through field-scale conservation opportunities.
  • Public engagement meeting to present PTMApp information and cost-share opportunities for landowners and farmers.
