Boots on the Ground | Polk County Iowa SWCD
Polk County Soil & Water Conservation District's board and local partners asked how one effective practice—saturated buffers—could be scaled from one or two per year to many. The result is a general contractor/bid approach that is on track to install 54 saturated buffers and biofilters in 2021 at lower cost, greater speed, in a way landowners appreciate.
In this conversation, meet elected officials Katie Rock and John Norwood, Agricultural Drainage Management Coalition lead Keegan Kult, landowner Lee Tesdell, and Polk County Watershed Coordinator Tanner Puls. Learn how they shaped a new system to meet their goals and share with others. Sharpen your questions by previewing our February 2021 Neighbor to Neighbor podcast featuring this group.
