CONSERVATION DISTRICT PARTNERS WITH SEQUIM HIGH SCHOOL FFA
Last month, the Clallam Conservation District Board approved a cost-share agreement with the Sequim High School Future Farmers of America program to help implement best farm management practices on the FFA farm. Projects planned include constructing a composting facility, pouring a concrete slab for the pig pen and installing water run-off infrastructure on the barn. The August 6, 2014 edition of the Sequim Gazette features a great article on the project which can be viewed by clicking here.
POLLUTION IDENTIFICATION & CORRECTION (PIC) PLAN
The goal of the PIC plan is to better coordinate both water quality monitoring and clean-up efforts among area agencies and organizations. The PIC plan will include a water quality monitoring plan to identify specific problems caused by nonpoint source pollution, identify specific measures to correct them, coordinate outreach and education efforts, clearly define when and how enforcement action should be taken, and include a plan for stable funding.
