Title: Maintenance program for three Southwestern Ontario watersheds 1995-96
Author: Upper Thames River Conservation Authority; Nethercott, Deryl; Hermans, Paul; Geurts, Hugh
Abstract: Following the completion of the overall SWEEP program, there was no longer a framework in place to continue activities in the Pilot watersheds, such as encouragement for the landowners to adopt conservation tillage/cropping practices, and monitoring of the water quality as a result of these land activities. The intent of the 'maintenance program' was to provide funding for short-term maintenance activities in three of the watersheds (Kintore, Essex, and Kettle), to sustain the levels of landowner adoption of conservation tillage practices attained at the end of the SWEEP program, and to continue to monitor the outflowing water quality. The objectives of the Maintenance Program for the three Southwestern Ontario Paired Watersheds remain unchanged during the 1995/1996 season. 1) To encourage continued adoption of conservation cropping and tillage practices within the three Paired Watersheds through dialogue with the landowners. 2) To monitor selected agronomic and environmental parameters in the three Watersheds using existing monitoring equipment from previous programs, in support of other research programs sited within the Watersheds.
