Lower Auglaize Watershed Program Progress Reports

 

In July 2019, the Paulding Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD), was awarded a Watershed Program Grant through the Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) to track/implement water quality and soil health projects in the Flatrock, Auglaize River, Little Auglaize River, Blue Creek, Sixmile, Middle Creek, and Prairie Creek watersheds. The watershed program focuses on the following priorities: controlled drainage, waterways, livestock nutrient management, stream restoration, home septic systems, filter strips, wetlands, soil health, and subsurface precision fertilizer placement. Reporting is done on a semi-annual basis to the Ohio Department of Agriculture. See below for our latest progress.
