For Western Washington farmers, the never-ending challenge of water: having too much when you don’t want it and/or not having enough when you need it are top of the list issues. From flooding to questionable water rights, anyone trying to make a living from the land can face these water-centric challenges and more. As with so many things, the less you know, the more it will cost you later.

To help address these challenges, WSU King County Extension, Snoqualmie Watershed Improvement District, King Conservation District, and King County are sponsoring three workshops on Agricultural Water Management (AWM) this spring. Location for all is the Sno-Valley Senior Center, 4610 Stephens Ave, Carnation, WA.

AWM ll – When You Have Too Much! Monday, April 16, 2018  6:30-9:30pm

Increased flooding, climate change, development, even increasing beaver populations all have a direct impact on farmers ability to farm in King County. Learn what you can do to manage excess water on your farm. Topics covered include drainage strategies, tiling, beaver controls, obtaining hydraulic permits, and a discussion of King County’s Agricultural Drainage Assistance Program (ADAP). Speakers include representatives from Snoqualmie Watershed Improvement District, NRCS, King County, and WDFW.


All workshops are free, we ask that you pre-register to ensure we have enough resources available for all attendees. Register online for any/all of the AWM workshops at AgWater.EventBrite.com. For more information, contact Kate Ryan kate.ryan@wsu.edu, (425) 357-6024.
