Working with Agriculture to Clean Up Wisconsin’s Waters

The Nature Conservancy is working with a coalition of farmers, University of Wisconsin scientists and county, state and federal agencies in the Pecatonica River watershed to blend sustainable agriculture with improved water quality in streams.

The partners are showing that you can improve water quality by using science to target conservation efforts on those fields and pastures with the greatest potential for contributing nutrients like phosphorus to streams. The project could help change the way we clean up Wisconsin’s waters.
