River Action is requesting funds for a project that offers design, technical and financial assistance to residential and commercial landowners and municipalities for the installation of buffers along Duck Creek and its tributaries. The buffers will improve water quality, reduce erosion on stream banks and provide habitat for wildlife. The projects will be planned and implemented through public meetings and educational workshops. This method of community involvement will increase awareness and education concerning the impairments in Duck Creek in Davenport and Bettendorf in Scott County, Iowa and promote personal responsibility and stewardship of watersheds.
