Best Management Practices (BMP) are conservation practices that can be cost-shared in the highlighted areas on the map above through the Wild Rice Soil Conservation District, in cooperation with the North Dakota Health Department of Environmental Quality, 319 Watershed Program. Current focus areas in the county are the Crooked Creek and Shortfoot Creek watersheds along with a half mile corridor along each side of the Wild Rice River.
Some cropland and livestock BMP’s include Fencing, Trough and Tank, Water Spreading, Well, Pipeline, Filter Strip, Grassed Waterway, Riparian Buffer, Cover Crop, and many more.
If you are interested in one of these BMP's or have an idea of something new you might want to try stop at the office and visit with Matt Olson, or give him a call at 701-724-6226 Ext 3.
It is the goal of the Wild Rice Soil Conservation District to educate and help the local land users (for conservation of soil) right here in Sargent County. We do this by offering a variety of services and making available various technical, financial, and educational resources.
