Agricultural Conservation Planning Framework (ACPF)

ACPF logo
The ACFP toolbox contains tools to:
Process (or “hydro-condition”) a watershed’s high-resolution topographic data for terrain analyses
Determine which fields within a watershed are most prone to contribute runoff to streams
Identify where field-scale and edge-of-field practices could be installed in your watershed, including:
Drainage water management
Surface Intake Filters or Restored Wetlands
Grassed Waterways
Contour Buffer Strips
Water and Sediment Control Basins
Nutrient Removal Wetlands
Edge-of-field Bioreactors
Map opportunities for riparian management:
Prioritize for runoff interception and to address bank erosion
Opportunities for removal of dissolved nutrients and floodplain re-connection
Saturated riparian buffers

User options are included in every tool to allow flexibility in matching practice-siting criteria to each local setting.
