00-600: Strawberry River Agricultural Watershed Project (PDF, 6.8 MB)
The conservation districts of Fulton, Sharp and Izard Counties approved 96 applications for cost-share projects within the 3 counties.  Projects included fencing, tanks, ponds,  prescribed grazing, pest management, pasture planting and brush management.  In addition, education and outreach led to newsletters, training sessins, field days and conferences.  BMP plans were made on 188 farms.
00-1500: St. Francis & Lee County No-Till Incentive Project (PDF, 3.3 MB)

To respond to the sediment impairment of the L'Anguille river, the St. Francis & Lee County Conservation Districts matched 319 funding with local support and landowner contributions to implement no-till methods in these counties.  Education, technology and incentives were provided, and an estimated 5000 acres of no-till crops were planted in the watershed.

04-200: Upper White River Cost Share Project (PDF, 4.1 MB)
The project provided cost share for a three year period to agricultural producers of the Upper White River watershed in Madison, Carroll and Boone Counties.  In addition, technical assistance will be provided in Carroll and Boone Counties.  Fencing, alternative water sources, tanks, pasture establishment, sheds, alum treatment, and streambank and shoreline protection were used.

04-300: Benton County Illinois River Watershed BMP-CNMP Cost Share (PDF, 6.1 MB)

The Benton County Conservation District provided technical assistance while implementing Best Management Practices (BMPs) and Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plans (CNMPs) on agricultural land within the Illinois watershed.  BMPs implemented include Waste Storage Structure, Pond, Fence, Pasture Planting, Pipeline, Heavy Use Area, Watering Facility, Alum, Well, and Hoop Building.
04-400: Demonstrating the Impact on Water Use and Runoff Water Quality of BMP Implementation for Rice Rotation in the L'Anguille Watershed (PDF, 4.6 MB)
The University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service helped demonstrate on-farm Best Management Practices that improve water quality and conserve groundwater, and in the process educated eastern Arkansas crop producers, particularly those in the L'Anguille River watershed, the economic and environmental value of such practices.

04-500: Best Management Practices for Spring River (PDF, 0.8 MB)

A steering committee was set up by the Fulton County Conservation District.  Technical assistance was then provided for conservation planning, and Best Managament Practices were implemented to reduce sediments and pollutants entering waterways.  Cost-share projects include NRCS Code Number 314, 342, 378, 382, 512, 516, 561, 571, 614, 648, and 391.
04-900: Evaluation of Prescribed Burning (PDF, 18.3 MB)
The Ecological Conservation Association (ECO) collected and analyzed samples originating from the runoff of watersheds that had been subjected to the use of prescribed burning in an effort to understand affective means to minimize that impact on water quality through the establishment of Best Management Practices (BMPs).  Project sites were in Hot Springs and Clark Counties.
05-120: Watershed Response Modeling in 11-Digit Priority Watersheds in Arkansas (PDF, 1.4 MB)
The University of Arkansas calibrated and validated a SWAT model for water quality response predictions for 11-digit sub-watersheds within each priority watershed, and ranked all 11-digit HUCS based on their relative contribution to flow, sediment and nutrient losses.  State agencies were trained on the use of the data and model.
05-130: Strengthening NPS Annual Report (PDF, 0.1 MB)
The 319 annual reporting process was reviewed and revised, strengthening the writing and presentation of the annual report.  The project was completed by ComMetrics, Inc, in an agreement with the Arkansas Association of Conservation Districts.  As a side project for this grant, this website was created to house the 319 Document Database.

05-200: Middle Fork White River Watershed Project- NPS Assessment (PDF, 14.8 MB)

The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality compiled a comprehensive database of pollution sources in the Middle Fork-White River watershed.  Information was based on GIS, GPS, channel geometry evaluation, and a water quality survey.  Sources that have the most impact and are most amenable to implementation of Best Management Practices were prioritized.


05-300: Silvicultural Statewide Assessment (PDF, 7.7 MB)

Best Management Practices (BMPs) were assessed statewide by the Arkansas Forestry Commission.  Technical assistance and education were provided to forestry stakeholders to facilitate implementation of BMPs, and project efforts were coordinated with other agencies and entities.
05-400: Demonstration of Best Management Practices for Stream Bank Protection (PDF, 3.1 MB)
The City of Rogers, WCRC, U of A, and AGFC combined efforts to demonstrate best management practices and methods for protecting streambanks in urban areas, presenting an alternative to the use of concrete-lined channels.  Bank stability and the riparian zone was restored along a stretch of Blossom Way Creek in Rogers, AR, and results were presented.
05-700: Lower L'Anguille Watershed Cost-Share Project (PDF, 9.0 MB)
To protect land in the L'Anguille watershed, the St. Francis County Conservation District teamed up with the Lee County Conservation District to provide up to 75% cost-share funding for targeted Best Management Practices.  Eighty applications were completed with practices installed, protecting tens of thousands of acres with no-till crops, cover crops, drop pipes, and water conveyance pipes.
05-900: Assessing NPS Sources for a Priority Subwatershed of the Upper Saline River (PDF, 19.5 MB)
The Nature Conservency led a team to select a priority subwatershed of the Upper Saline River, to estimate the sources and relative loads of the subwatershed, and to evaluate the pollutants based on land use and water quality data.
05-1000: Urban NPS Hispanic Outreach and Education (PDF, 0.6 MB)
The University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service led an education and outreach project aimed at the urban Hispanic population of Arkansas.  Fact sheets, mass media including television and radio interviews, events, outreach meetings and youth programs focused on stormwater runoff and the dangers of household hazardous waste.
05-1200: Watershed Priorities - Arkansas NPS Management Program 2005-2009 (PDF, 0.8 MB)
The University of Arkansas, the Agricultural Extension Service and ComMetrics, Inc drafter the 2005-2009 Revised Arkansas Non-Point Source Pollution Management Plan.  The plan was discussed and reviewed by the Arkansas Nonpoint Source Task Force, and revised and edited to meet EPA criteria.  The project provided support to the NPS task force and initiated an assessment program.
05-1300: Edge of Field WaterQuality Monitoring in Ozark Highlands (PDF, 3.0 MB)
The University of Arkansas evaluated several management practices on small plots.  Berms were constructed around field perimeters to create individual watersheds and isolate runoff water.  Surface runoff was measured, sampled and analyzed.  Four demonstration projects evaluated loads and practices related to swine effluent, poultry litter, forage management and soil test phosphorus.
Water Quality Trends - Beaver Lake and Tributaries (PDF, 2.3 MB)
Trend Analysis, When You Lack Time, Resources, and Technical Skills (PDF, 0.2 MB)


*These projects were presented in September 2006 using Microsoft PowerPoint.  The presentations have been converted to PDF format.  It is not as pretty, but the information is still there in a smaller file size.
