Conservation Matters: Leveraging Multi-Agency Partnerships to Advance Conservation Planning

Brought to you by the SWCS Science and Policy Committee.

Presenters: Brian Rast, US Army Corps of Engineers, Lead Silver Jackets Coordinator, Kansas; Scott L. Satterthwaite, Watershed Management Section, Bureau of Environmental Field Services, Kansas Department of Health and Environment

The speakers will show the tie between conservation efforts done as part of soil health management systems, Kansas Department of Health and Environment watershed restoration efforts using EPA funds, and watershed-wide land use incentives, which may be an underused nonstructural measure. The project performed a sensitivity analysis with assistance from US Army Corps of Engineers Hydrologic Engineering Center in the HEC-HMS software. The analysis also used new data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for rainfall intensity increases under climate change. Participants can ask questions and share their ideas on how to prepare our next steps in effective watershed partnerships and how we can reduce flood risks with these combined approaches.
