Public hearing Feb. 12 on proposed amended soil loss limit regulations

Thursday, January 17, 2013

A public hearing will be held at 11 a.m. on Feb. 12 at NRCS, 1617 North Lake Avenue, Storm Lake, on the question of the adoption of proposed amended soil loss limit regulations for the lands in the Buena Vista County Soil and Water Conservation District.

All persons who are likely to be affected by the amended regulations may attend and will be given an opportunity to present their views concerning the amendments.

The regulation changes will establish allowable rates of soil loss by wind or water erosion based on the newest published soil survey information for lands in the county. The rates of erosion expressed in tons per acre per year are proposed to be set for agricultural lands, nonagricultural lands and construction sites. For agricultural land, the proposed soil loss limit will be set for each soil type and will vary from one to five tons per acre per years.

The proposed amended soil loss limit regulations are on file and may be reviewed at the Buena Vista County Soil and Water Conservation District office, 1617 North Lake Ave., Storm Lake, prior to the date of the hearing.
