Abstract
  • The purpose of the project was to demonstrate, evaluate, and quantify the effectiveness of Best Management Practices (BMP's) adopted in 1978 (2) by Gilliam, Morrow, Sherman, Umatilla, and Wasco County Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCD's), Oregon (Map 1). These demonstrations and evaluations were designed to reduce landowner uncertainties concerning benefits to be expected from BMP's installed on their land to reduce soil erosion and improve water quality. Three years of erosion and water quality demonstration and evaluation measurements and observations indicate that terracing had the most positive effect on water quality, while dry residue in excess of 1000 pounds per acre after seeding had the most effect on the initiation of erosion. When terraces and one other BMP were present there was a measurable reduction in the amount of erosion which showed up as less sediment in the terrace and less sediment in the runoff samples.
