Forestry Best Management Practices

As part of the Water Quality Improvement Project Round 11 grant focusing on sediment reduction in the Honeoye Lake Watershed, forestry best management practices (BMP's) were installed at the Honeoye Inlet Wildlife Management Area. The BMP's installed included one rubber belt water bar, two earthen water bars, and one ford crossing. These BMP's will reduce erosion on forest trails and logging roads. The public is encouraged to view these completed projects. Access to the trail head is located on East Lake Rd in Richmond.
