Rangeland Management Practices

July 21, 2022

The James River Water Development District partnered with US Fish and Wildlife Service to promote grassland management, which is beneficial for wildlife production, erosion reduction, and improved water quality in the James River. Specific conservation practices which would be implemented include water developments for managed grazing projects (pipelines, tanks, pasture pumps, alternative energy water pumps, rural water hook-ups, and shallow wells), new fence, and native grass and forb seed.
