Three new projects were announced in August for the second round of Puget Sound Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) funding:
• Skagit County will be implementing best management practices or BMPs to reduce fecal coliform runoff in high priority areas.
• Snohomish CD will be conducting nutrient management, habitat and riparian restoration, and soil health work in the lower Stillaguamish watershed.
• Whatcom CD will be working with dairy producers and Janicki Bioenergy to modify existing technology to process dairy waste into clean pathogen-free water and marketable fertilizer.
These projects add to the early action projects already underway for Newaukum Creek in King County, Thomas Creek in the Skagit, and Skykomish River in Snohomish.
