Archive | Water quality & quantity

The Water Quality and Quantity category covers protecting and restoring the quality of surface and ground water. District programs include water quality monitoring and many conservation practices. Rain gardens and bioswales help clean water before it infiltrates into ground water. Livestock exclusion fencing keeps animals out of surface water.

Activities focusing on water quality are about assuring future supplies of water for people, plants, and animals. Rainwater harvesting and irrigation system improvements are good examples of water quantity practices.
