BMP AUCTION GRANT
The Lenawee Conservation District has a grant project set up in the form of a Bid Auction, through which landowners can submit bids on a price per acre they would take for putting in either Cover Crops, a Residue Management System, or Filter Strips. The object of the grant is to encourage a streamlined process for implementing Best Management Systems that will help reduce sedimentation in the River Raisin Watershed. The fourth round of the auction just started and bidding is open to landowners throughout the River Raisin Watershed with implementation of the BMPs in 2013. Bid sheet applications are available at the Lenawee Conservation District office. Deadline for bids is February 28th, 2013. Landowners need to meet with Natural Resources Conservation Service staff to review the process and land tracts to be submitted. For more information contact the Lenawee Conservation District office at 517-263-7400 Ext. 3.
