 65. PROJECT:Kirby Creek Watershed Plan
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:Hot Springs Conservation District
LOCATION:Hot Springs County

The Kirby Creek watershed contains approximately 128,400 acres of land. Ownership is divided between federal, private, and state interests. The district would like an evaluation of alternatives to address water quality, head cutting, sediment and flood control issues within the watershed. Also of interest to the district are the lack of developed upland livestock and wildlife water and impacts to riparian areas within the drainage. This information would provide baseline information from which the District can continue to expand upon to begin implementation of management practices that address the natural resource issues within the drainage.

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated into the Rehabilitation Program at Level I with an appropriation of $175,000.
