The Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission utilizes Section 319(h) funding from the Clean Water Act to execute the agricultural components of TMDL implementation plans through various projects throughout Georgia. The Upper Coosawattee 319 project is located predominantly in Gilmer County in the north central portion of the state. Through the Upper Coosawattee 319 project, 35 landowners have utilized funding to protect water and soil quality on their farms through the installation of stackhouses, incinerators, stream crossings, winter feeders, heavy use areas, composters, and other available practices. In addition, seven orchards have participated in a pest monitoring/scouting program in conjunction with developing an integrated orchard management plan (IOMP) to reduce the amount of pesticides being utilized in Gilmer County.
