Project Goals/Objectives: This project will begin implementing portions of the WPP developed for the Pecos River watershed in Texas. It will focus primarily on implementing three of the highest priority management measures identified in the WPP. These three practices, chosen by landowners, are the control of saltcedar and other brush species in the riparian corridor, removing the debris left by saltcedar control, revegetating these areas through the development and implementation of WQMPs.
