Agricultural BMPs that will be installed as a result of the grant award will include a stabilized Animal Heavy Use Area (AHUA) and roof runoff controls & diversion.
A stabilized Animal Heavy Use Area (AHUA) is a practice that addresses areas where animals often travel or stand. These areas tend to be near barn entrances or feeding areas. These areas most often consist of torn-up sod that is muddy and erosive. Vegetation often cannot take hold.
Construction work on this project will be on-going this summer. We look forward to bringing you an update to this post including photos of the finished BMPs.
