Filter Strips

 The photo below shows the area where I worked today.  Most of my sampling was in the valley of Coop Creek in the far background of the photo.  I was a great day with great fall colors.  Soil temperature was 50 degrees at 10AM.  That was in soybean stubble. 
The photo below is immediately adjacent to Coop Creek.  It shows a grass filter strip along the creek. Filter strips are very effective in keep pollutants out of the water.
