Water Quality Improvement Program

The CCNRD’s Water Quality Improvement Program utilizes grant funds to partner with landowners and producers on water development and enhancement practices. These projects are designed to address landowner/producer’s resource concerns, particularly as relates to improving alternative watering sources, grazing practices, and rangeland and riparian conditions. Improved water access and upland grazing conditions also reduce E. coli loading to nearby tributaries of the Belle Fourche River and Donkey Creek.

 CCNRD staff also conducts water quality monitoring during the recreation season on the impaired stretches of Donkey Creek and the Belle Fourche River to assess E. coli, ammonia, and chloride concentrations.
