Prevent discharge from waste systems.. No storage within 100’ of wells, property line  ...   crop fields so that soil erosion loss does not exceed 2 tons per acre (according to Natural Resource Conservation Service standards).. Mortality Composting.. 100’ from boundary, wells, surface water.. Not on land subject to annual overflow.. 300’ from neighboring domiciles.. Buffer Zones.. Maintain 10’ buffers of vegetation, 25’ at runoff points.. No manure application in buffer zone.. Fertilize and tilling only for maintenance.. May be harvested.. Construction of Farm Structures..

  • Title: Invasive Species
    Descriptive info: Landowners Menu.. Invasive Species.. Norway Maple.. Garlic Mustard.. Forest Invaders.. Current Use.. Rain Gardens.. Your Own Private Water.. Invasive Species.. This section has been provided and developed by Shelly Stiles, Bennington County Conservation District Manager and members of the District.. Non-Native Invasive Species - Overview.. Native plant populations throughout Vermont are being supplanted by non-native invasive plants.. To the extent these invasions are successful, habitat "services" provided by native plant communities - food, protection from prey and weather, places for breeding and nesting, regulation of water temperature, and others - are diminished.. Along streams and rivers, water quality too is impaired, as organic inputs are altered, runoff regimes are changed, and banks are destabilized by plant species whose roots are rhizomatous and ill-equipped to protect banks from erosion.. In 2003, the State of Vermont adopted a Noxious Weed Quarantine rule to regulate the importation and movement of a number of invasive plants.. Many of them are familiar to gardeners and naturalists in the region, and include goutweed, garlic mustard, bush honeysuckles, buckthorns, and purple loosestrife.. It is illegal to move or sell these species.. The State has also put several invasive species on a Watch List, which includes such common species as Norway maple, dame's rocket, yellow flag, reed canary grass, and multiflora rose.. The Watch List has no legal status, but is a useful tool for those who sell, purchase, or grow plants and want to avoid those that are problematic.. For more information on these  ...   hosted an event to promote that initiative and solicit volunteers.. The event - "Invasives: Meet Them, Eat Them" - treated participants to snacks which included invasive species as ingredients.. Some of those recipes are available here: Knotweed and Garlic Mustard Delights.. Surveys conducted in 2006 and 2007 by Student Conservation Association interns working with the Green Mountain National Forest and BCCD confirmed that Japanese knotweed is relatively uncommon in the Batten Kill watershed.. In years to come, BCCD and the Forest hope to implement an "early response" program to treat these invaders.. Riparian and Roadside Invaders.. For some invasive plants, road crews are a primary (albeit unwitting) vector of movement along roads and to and along watercourses.. Mowing machines move seeds of purple loosestrife, garlic mustard, wild chervil, and wild parsnip.. Graders and ditching equipment carry rhizomes of purple loosestrife, common reed, and Japanese knotweed.. Stockpiled ditch spoils, when used in another location as fill, can spread rhizomes of invasive plants to new locations.. Even vehicle wheels can carry plant parts from place to place.. In 2007, with a grant from the Vermont Watershed Grant Program (which is supported by sales of conservation license plates),.. BCCD produced a Powerpoint presentation on managing roadside invasive plants for road crews.. Links to other resource materials:..

  • Title: Watersheds
    Descriptive info: Watersheds Menu.. Watersheds.. Clean and Clear Action Plan.. The Vermont Clean and Clear Action Plan was initiated in 2003 with the goal of accelerating the reduction of phosphorus pollution in Lake Champlain and reducing related pollutants in waters statewide.. The state has appropriated more than $42 million for Clean and Clear over the first five years of this effort, and Vermont’s commitment to Clean and Clear has stimulated an additional $42 million in federal funds for supporting programs.. As a result, the Agencies of Natural Resources, Agriculture, and Transportation have been able to greatly expand their programs to implement the phosphorus loading reductions required by the Lake Champlain Phosphorus Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) plan, and to address similar water quality needs statewide.. The Clean and Clear Action Plan involves implementation of a suite of programs, most based in either the Agency of Natural Resources or the Agency of Agriculture, Food, and  ...   Lake Champlain.. Programs include efforts to install the necessary structures in barnyards to prevent direct farmstead discharges, minimize the further loss of floodplain function in order to maximize watershed storage of sediment and nutrients, reduce stormwater erosion in urban and suburban areas as well as along backroads, and eliminate discharges of improperly or untreated sewage.. Since its inception in 2004, the Clean and Clear program has supported hundreds of water quality projects throughout the state, ranging from securing belt-width river corridor easements on active channels in watersheds from the Batten Kill to the Missisquoi, to providing incentives for more than 8,000 acres of cover cropping, to providing technical and financial assistance to nearly 150 towns to reduce road-related erosion..
