04-180: Ballard Creek Monitoring (PDF, 2.5 MB) (PPTX, 1.9 MB)
The Arkansas Water Resources Center used the sampling station installed at the Washington County Road 76 Bridge over Ballard Creek just before the creek leaves Arkansas and enters Oklahoma to used to continue water quality sampling, analysis and load calculations. 
05-1400: Abandoned Pesticide Project - L'Anguille Watershed (PDF, 4.8 MB) (PPT, 21.8 MB)
The University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service educated agricultural producers on the dangers of abandoned pestices, and organized collection events in a partnership with the State Plant Board.  Types, quantities and packaging were determined to ensure proper disposal.  A budget and proposal was developed for the AAP&PPD Trust Fund.
05-1600: Litter Transport Cost Share (PDF, 4.8 MB) (PPT, 9.6 MB)
The Arkansas Natural Resources Commission continued project 03-1100 to subsidize the removal of poultry litter from Northwest Arkansas to selected areas and buffer watersheds within the state.
06-400: Cache River Watershed Sediment Assessment (PDF, 8.7 MB) (PPT, 49.0 MB)
The Nature Conservancy conducted a project of sediment and nutrient fluxes within the Cache River and Bayou DeView watersheds.  Multiple investigations included water quality, biological sample collection/analysis, and chanel cross-section measurement/analysis.  Baseline data was generated and a watershed framework assessment was developed.
06-1000: West Fork White River Restoration Monitoring (PDF, 4.4MB) (PPT, 10.1 MB)
The Ecological Conservation Organization (ECO) established and maintained two permanent monitoring stations to continually monitor water quality and river stage in the West Fork of the White River Watershed.  Water quality samples were extracted and analyzed for a three year period, and loads were calculated. 
07-200: Utilizing Wastewater Treatment Plant Residuals (PDF, 3.6 MB) (PPT,4.8 MB)
The U of A Civil Engineering Dept & USDA/ARS Poultry Center examined the use of sewage sludge combined with alum sludge, two previously discarded byproducts of the wastewater treatment process, as fertilizer.  Through rainfall simulation studies and field scale studies, the project was able to analyze the cost and potential value of such processes in northwest Arkansas.
07-300: Demonstration of a New Ditch Lining Technology for Controlling Gully Erosion Associated with Road Ditches (PDF, 13.1 MB) (PPT, 18.9 MB)
In the L'Anguille watershed, the city of Harrisburg led a project that demonstrated a new technique and technology for stabilizing road ditches.  The new "SmartDitch" method was compared to conventional methods, and cost-effectiveness was measured for the new technique.  Two field days were held to share the results with surrounding municipalities.
07-600: Implementation of Low Impact Development BMPs to Control Sediment from Urban Development in Fayetteville (PDF, 21.2 MB) (PPT, 30.0 MB)
The University of Arkansas Community Design Center developed a pilot project to advance BMPs in LID, LEED-ND and affordable housing while adhering to code requirements and client needs.  The project received support through city permitting.  It received a national award in landscape architecture and engineering education.
07-1000: Strawberry River Sub Watersheds Monitoring (PDF, 3.5 MB) (PPT, 6.7 MB)
Two monitoring sites from each were selected in four subwatersheds: Little Strawberry, Greasy Creek, Sandy Creek, and Bullpen Creek.  The ASU Ecotoxicology Research Facility tested water for total suspended solids, nitrates, nitrites, and orthophosphate.  Samples were collected by the Fulton County Conservation District, to measure the effect of its BMP implementation in the area.
07-1300: Monitoring the Effectiveness of BMP at Reducing Total Suspended Solids in Agricultural Runoff (PDF, 2.8 MB) (PPT, 22.9 MB)
The Ecological Conservation Association selected 38 locations, in Arkansas, Conway, Desha, Prairie and Pope Counties, to compare water quaity grab samples for Total Suspended Solids (TSS) before and after drop pipes and flash risers are installed.  Significant decreases in TSS were statistically apparent when BMPs were applied, particularly to barren fields.
08-100: Galla Creek, Bayou Bart, L'Anguille River, Upper Saline Monitoring (PDF, 3.7 MB) (PPT, 24.4 MB)
Ecological Conservation Organization
08-100: Illinois River Monitoring (PDF, 1.5 MB) (PPTX, 1.1 MB)

08-600: Poultry House Runoff Demonstration (PDF, 18.3 MB) (PPTX, 23.6 MB)
University of Arkansas - Andrew Sharpley
08-700: Forestry BMP Survey (PDF, 4.0 MB) (PPT, 7.8 MB)
Arkansas Forestry Commission
Stream Team Super Hero (Download .mov Video, 1.3 MB)


*These projects were presented in September 2009 using various versions of Microsoft PowerPoint.  You can download the originals by selecting the first link, with .pptx or .ppt.  In addition, the presentations have been converted to PDF format.  If you do not have PowerPoint, if your version is not able to open the newer files, or if you want to download the document quicker, use the PDF format.  It is not as pretty, but the information is still there.

Project Summaries are submitted to the Nonpoint Source Pollution Management Program, and are archived in the 319 Project Document Database.  They may not be available for all projects.
