Cost Share available for conservation practices By Marcia Heiling Redwood SWCD Many Redwood County landowners are seeing the effects of excessive rainfall in May and early June. The washing away of valuable topsoil has occurred in many fields and now is a good time to address these problem erosion areas. Cost share programs are available to install grassed waterways, water and sediment control basins, and terraces to solve these erosion problems. Installing these measures can help stop the loss of valuable topsoil during heaw rains. Gully erosion is a form of erosion that is easy to see. Gullies form when rapidly flowing water is concentrat- ed over an area of unpro- tected soil. The runoff water accumulates into channels. Rapidly moving water causes channels to grow deeper and wider. How steep the ground, the lack of vegetative cover, a large volume of water flow- ing over an area and the type of tillage used are all factors which can lead to gully formation. Other types of erosion are sheet and rill. Rill ero- sion occurs on slopes where runoff water accumulates into small channels. It can be seen as many small chan- nels a few inches deep and occurs on slopes that have little protective cover. Sheet erosion is the gradual wear- ing away of a thin. uniform layer of soil. Although gully erosion is the most dramatic form of soil erosion, sheet and rill are a greater con- cern because of the continu- al loss of topsoil. The recent rainfalls have left reminders of how vulnera- ble our soils are to eroding. Landowners who are noticing problem areas due to water erosion in fields are encouraged to contact the Soil and Water Conservation District/Natural Resources Conservation Service office to learn more about possible solutions.
