Grassed Waterway in the Canandaigua Lake Watershed

This project included the installation of a 750’Lx30’W grassed waterway and a ¼ acre Water and Sediment Control Basin(WASCOB) with a 600’ underground outlet system on a tract of farmland in the Town of Gorham. Combined, these two best management practices control and convey almost 60 CFS of storm water across the cropland. These projects have the potential to reduce soil loss by up to 3.5 tons of soil/acre/year in the affected area. The projects were installed with minimal disturbance to the farms tillable production acreage.
