‘Boots on the ground’ water conservation

A busload of ranchers and conservation agency representatives made the rounds around the countryside near Golden Valley to see the results of the first year of the Spring Creek Watershed Project sponsored by the Dunn and Mercer County Soil Conservation Districts.

Spring Creek runs 88 miles and drains a large portion of northwestern Mercer County and northeastern Dunn County. It runs through Zap and joins up with the Knife River near Beulah. Most of the property along the creek is private land that is devoted to ranching or farming operations.
