Educational Farm Visits Coming Soon
In response to the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL), mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Pennsylvania Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP), Conservation Districts across Pennsylvania will be visiting with crop and/or livestock producers to educate them on the Pennsylvania regulations relating to farming activities. Conservation District staff plan to meet with every producer in their respective counties within the next 5 years to explain the need for agricultural plans relating to erosion/sediment control and manure management. Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has guidance available for producers to write their own farm plans, or assistance is available at the local Conservation District and/or Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) offices.
