With WIRB funding the Fox River Ecosystem Development board will continue to install prioritized practices identified by assessments within the impaired segment of Fox River. The FRED board is also asking to continue funding for a new 5 year position for assessment, planning and technical assistance. With new assessments and water quality monitoring already being done on the impaired segment of the Fox River a lot of valuable information is at hand. Ecosystem Development board is requesting funding from WIRB to install grade stabilization structures, water sediment basins, and terraces to reduce sediment delivery to Fox River. The FRED board in both Iowa and Missouri are committed not only to seek funding to continue water quality efforts for more practices but also to enhance and protect existing practices and investments that protect our water quality and economic viability in both states. We are off to a good start and want to continue our progress on the Fox River.
