Lake Springfield Watershed Nitrogen Management Project
Caroline Wade, Illinois Agriculture Program Director, The Nature Conservancy
The Illinois Council on Best Management Practices coordinated a Lake Springfield Watershed Special Project with local agriculture retailers, Springfield City Water, Light, and Power, SCSWCD and Lincoln Land Community College to achieve a sustained reduction in nitrate loading from agricultural non-point sources into Lake Springfield through education, promotion and voluntary adoption of nitrogen management systems and scientific initiatives. The Lake Springfield Watershed Project was a three-year project funded by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and Springfield’s City, Water, Light and Power focusing on gaining a better understanding of the trends in nitrate levels within the Lake Springfield Watershed and achieving a sustained reduction in nitrate loading from agricultural non-point sources by encouraging producers to implement BMPs throughout the 175,000 acre watershed. In addition to CBMP, local ag retailers and farmers, the Sangamon County SWCD and the Lincoln Land Community College Ag program were vital partners in the success of the project.
