Walworth

 

Two hydro-seeding projects were recently completed for AEM participating farmers. The first site was located in the town of Walworth. We seeded about a half acre of swales and filter strips along agricultural fields. This area had a history of erosion problems, the seeding should help reduce erosion and filter sediment from runoff.

Galen – Rose

The second site we seeded was located in the towns of Galen and Rose. We hydro-seeded approximately 4500 linear feet of newly excavated drainage channel, which totaled about an acre and a half. The seeding will help stabilize the banks of the channel and reduce sediment transport downstream.
