Livingston County Soil and Water Conservation District Provides Update


GENESEO, N.Y., Dec. 20, 2023 – The Livingston County Soil and Water Conservation District, which has been providing technical assistance to landowners, farm operations and municipalities for decades, has recently concluded its work in reshaping a pair of projects with the goal of redirecting storm water and preserving land quality.

The District recently completed its work near Jaycox Creek after implementing a series of eight water and sediment control basins, which will alleviate flooding associated with larger storm events.   Work, which began in early 2020, resulted in the establishment of nine million gallons of storm water detention, which will provide significant relief to numerous commercial and residential properties located downstream.  

Additionally, the District worked within the Conesus Lake Watershed and Webb Farm to install over three acres of field borders and contour terracing.  Today, the farm’s infrastructure is capable of addressing a 100-year storm event.  Two more water and sediment control basins and a permanent grass buffer strip along an 1,800-foot stretch of an active stream were also established in 2022.

Learn more about these projects along with other undertakings by visiting the Livingston County Soil and Water Conservation District’s website.
