As the owner of a small acreage, water is important to many of your activities. If you have a private well, then you may use groundwater for drinking and other household needs, for watering your animals or irrigating your land. If you have water rights for surface water, then you are able to irrigate your pastures, gardens or lawn. If your land has running water, ponds or wetlands, you may use this water for your animals, for fishing and other recreation, or just for the aesthetic pleasures that water can bring. With these benefits comes the responsibility to protect the quality of this water. Protecting water quality not only benefits you and your family by preserving healthy drinking water and a healthy environment, but it also protects those water users downstream. This section will help demonstrate proper water management that will lead to more, cleaner water for all of us.
