Miller Creek

Water Quality Improvement Project

The Miller Creek Water Quality Improvement project supports the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy and the Iowa Water Quality Initiative by working with producers in the Miller Creek Watershed in Black Hawk County to install demonstration practices to improve water quality in Miller Creek and to leverage those practices for educational purposes.

The Miller Creek project includes an innovative education campaign featuring a digital learning commons for producers and other stakeholders to learn about conservation practices and water quality, a social media campaign, quarterly webinars, biannual hands-on workshops,

and monthly informal networking events for producers.

The Miller Creek project will increase opportunities for producers to engage in hands-on learning about conservation, foster peer-to-peer learning through increased networking opportunities, and begin to shift social norms in favor of conservation practice installation by aggressively highlighting the activities of producers who adopt conservation practices.
