Applications for Stream Buffer Planting Project Now Being Accepted

The Loudoun Soil and Water Conservation District, in partnership with the Loudoun County government, is accepting applications for a unique Riparian Buffer Planting project through March 15, 2018.

Private residential, industrial, commercial, and Home Owner Association (HOA) landowners in Loudoun are all eligible to apply for funds to plant buffers along perennial (year-round) streams and water bodies. An effective technique for improving water quality, this program reimburses landowners up to $7,000 per acre for planting materials and labor costs.

For more information:  see our project fact sheet, application form, and plant list or contact Urban/Ag Conservationist, Chris Van Vlack at (571) 918-4530, ext. 107 or chris.vanvlack@lswcd.org.
