PEI AgriWatershed Project

This September TREC partnered with the PEI AgriWatershed Partnership to install a grassed waterway in order to reduce in-stream sedimentation from soil erosion. Berms were also built to divert flow towards the grassed waterway and energy dissipators were put in place to slow flowing waters before entering the stream. This project will work to reduce agricultural runoff and keep topsoil on the field, improving surface water and soil health.

It is important to use a jute erosion mat to protect your structures and keep them functioning properly, this jute will eventually degrade leaving a functional grassed waterway.

Thank you to the AgriWatershed Partnership and the landowners for working to create an overall healthier watershed!
