Stabilized Fording Sites
Since crop and pasture lands often straddle watercourses, providing safe crossings for livestock and equipment with reduced potential for negative water quality effects is critical. Additionally, watering livestock at rivers is often the only practical option for agricultural producers. The KWRC has used stable fording sites as both watering locations for livestock as well as crossings for farm equipment. The approaches are properly aligned and hardened, and the stream bottom is stabilized with hard rock to prevent erosion and rutting. Since 1994 the KWRC has installed 85 stabilized fording sites in the watershed.

The KWRC makes great effort to publish our work and have it available for public viewing in a timely fashion. Many factors such as staff movement, time, or financial restrictions can sometimes limit the reporting we can complete. However, we still have a lot to share! Below is a list of our reports to date; take a look by clicking the title of the report you're interested in.
