SUCCESSFUL CONSERVATION
FOREST HEALTH

IRRIGATION WATER MANAGEMENT

BEFORE

AFTER

Since 2014, the U.S. Forest Service (FS) and USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service
(NRCS) have been working together to improve the health of forests where public and private
lands meet. Through the Joint Chiefs’ Landscape Restoration Partnership, the two USDA
agencies are restoring the health of the forest, reducing wildfire threats to communities and
landowners, protecting water quality, and enhancing wildlife habitat.
Thinning projects on one private property in La Pine is showcased here.

With an inefficient irrigation system, landowners lacked the ability to manage their on-farm irrigation water efficiently, which created resource issues.

To solve these resource issues, a Conserving Water and Power through Irrigation Water Management partnership formed. Lisa and her neighbors were able to replace the antiquated irrigation delivery system and take advantage of pressurized water made available from a recent canal piping project near their properties.
