Online Tool Highlights Westmoreland County’s Natural Resource Protection Projects

Rain gardens, stream bank fencing, and stabilized roadways are some of the natural resources protection projects, known as best management practices, that are featured in Westmoreland Conservation District’s new online Best Management Practices Portfolio.
The portfolio, located on the District’s website, currently highlights 25 different projects that are on the ground and working to benefit water quality in the region.  
Visitors to the site can read about best management practices for stormwater management, watershed restoration, dirt and gravel roads, and agriculture, and can view striking photos of these projects.  
The portfolio is a living document and will be updated as more projects are completed throughout the county.  The District hopes that visitors to the site will be inspired by the projects and choose to adopt some of the best management practices highlighted in the portfolio.
The BMP portfolio was funded by a Department of Environmental Protection Education Grant.
