Agricultural 319 Grant Funds Available for Farms in Shaws Creek Watershed

rant funds are available to help share the cost of conservation practices at farms in Shaws Creek Watershed (such as fencing livestock out of streams with alternative water sources, cross-fencing, stabilization of crop fields and orchards, heavy use areas and stream banks). These conservation practices will significantly reduce the amount of sediment, nutrients and bacteria entering the creeks and tributaries in Shaws Creek Watershed and ensure cleaner water and healthier ecosystems. Protecting water quality in Shaws Creek will also provide cleaner source water for the City of Aiken’s drinking water treatment plant.
