Watershed Conservation District installs board
Elections were held and the Price River Watershed Conservation District board members were installed recently. They are Dale Mathis (chairman), Tom Matthews (vice chairman), Andy Schmidt, Tom Bruno, and William Butcher (treasurer).
The Conservation District helps to focus attention on all natural resources and related problems. They help develop programs to solve resource problems and help landowners develop and use conservation practices.
The Price River District, along with the help on their watershed planner, has been involved in projects such as improved irrigation, salinity control, animal feeding operation plans, river restoration projects, tamarisk and Russian olive removal, control of other noxious and invasive weeds, and grazing and range improvement projects. The district partners with state and local entities to help protect our natural resources.
