2016 EPA Tour Presentation

Here is the 2016 EPA Tour Power Point presentation by Dennis Burns. It is saved in Adobe PDF format and the original MS PowerPoint:

Waterbody Improved: Waste from agricultural production and the presence of livestock in riparian areas degraded water quality in Kitchen Creek. As a result, the stream was placed on the 2006 Clean Water Act (CWA) section 303(d) list as impaired for fecal coliform. The West Virginia Conservation Agency (WVCA) developed and implemented a watershed-based plan to address the problem through practices such as limiting livestock access to the stream and constructing waste storage facilities. Water quality has generally improved in response to this restoration work; bacteria levels have decreased and habitat conditions have improved.
