During the past couple months during the Covid-19 outbreak the Natural Bridge SWCD has been hard at work getting Agricultural Best Management Practices on the ground. Half a dozen contracts have been written up allocating over 260,000 dollars. Utilizing proper social distancing the staff has been able to conduct site visits to inspect and sign off on existing projects.
Natural Bridge SWCD has allocated over $400,000 in fiscal year 2020. This includes implementing over 30 different types of Agricultural Best Management Practices; these practices help reduce erosion and non-point sources of pollution within Rockbridge County.
