Plum and Kankapot Creeks Riparian Protection

The Outagamie County Land Conservation Department will use this grant to provide incentives for agricultural producers to install vegetated buffer strips on approximately 14 miles of intermittent and perennial streams in the Plum and Kankapot Creek watersheds, which are significant contributors of sediment and phosphorus to the Lower Fox River. The buffer strips will prevent an estimated 1,000 tons of sediment and 6,000 pounds of phosphorus from entering Green Bay in Lake Michigan each year. Fifteen-year operation and maintenance agreements will be used to ensure longevity of the buffers.
