PR Watershed Gets Grant

The Pine River Watershed Alliance received $35,000 in grants from three non-profit foundations and three citizens recently. The grants will allow the Watershed to conduct a soils phosphorus study to determine the historical and current land uses of lands in the Bungo Creek area.

This is the second phase of a multi-year program to identify the non-point sources of phosphorus flowing down the Bungo, into the Pine River and then into the Whitefish Chain of Lakes. This first phase of the PRWA research project determined the amount of phosphorus exported from Bungo Creek into the South Fork of the Pine River.
