Between 1965 and 2004, the Washington Conservation District (WCD) installed 197 water quality improvement projects, or roughly five per year. These projects helped to repair crumbling ravines, prevent stream banks from slumping and reduce erosion and runoff from farm fields and residential areas. In the next four years, the conservation district and local watershed agencies worked in partnership to install 80 water quality projects in Washington County, bumping the average up to 20 per year.
