The Watershed-Friendly Property Certification recognizes landowners who incorporate best practices in managing and protecting water resources and provide habitat for wildlife and pollinators on their property. In addition, the certification recognizes landowners who make a commitment to minimize their potential impact on water quality by using less harmful chemicals and maintain good housekeeping of their property. In order to achieve this certification, individuals and organizations must commit to working towards the objectives of the Watershed-Friendly Property Program, which include:
- Reducing stormwater runoff.
- Reducing pollution.
- Conserving water.
- Supporting wildlife and pollinators.
Evergreen Conservancy applied for and received certification for our Tanoma AMD Passive Treatment System this month.
