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.

Worth Wading Into
Students from UNB have partnered with the KWRC to investigate the presence of Emerald Ash Borer, an invasive forest pest, in our watershed. Now, they want to hear from you!
UNB is seeking residents of our watershed to participate in a short survey about Emerald Ash Borer. The survey should only take 8-15 minutes to complete, and will help influence management strategies for Emerald Ash Borer in our watershed.
Your participation is sincerely appreciated!
