About GLBP Funded Projects in Wisconsin

Since 1991, the Great Lakes Basin Program has supported six soil erosion and sediment control projects in Wisconsin totaling $139,800, with an additional $103,076 being leveraged from non-federal sources.

Projects in Wisconsin have focused on agricultural, urban, and forestry related erosion, and one project examined the impacts of dredging. These projects have prevented the loss of 2,738 tons of soil. In addition, the projects have directly eliminated the potential input of over six tons of nitrogen and seven tons of phosphorus into Wisconsin's lakes and streams.

Public information and education programs have also been an important component of Wisconsin projects, targeting key stakeholders groups such as developers, farmers, foresters, urban residents, and government agency personnel. Projects have used newspapers, cable television, radio, billboards and newsletters as the vehicles for disseminating effective soil erosion and sediment control information to over 460,000 people.
