Seidel Farms Project Details
Thu Mar 19, 2009
Commonly grouped in clusters, family farms are ideal locations for Best Management Practice installations. With over 300 acres of land, the Seidel Farms provided multiple opportunities to protect the very springs that form the headwaters of the Maiden Creek.
Date: Jul, 14, 2009
The Seidel farms were the first of 15 priority farms to receive streambank fencing, buffers, and crossings through the Schuylkill Watershed Initiative. As such, they served as a critical demonstration project in the community, illustrating the effects of BMP installations for protecting water quality.
