Slow the Flow of Stormwater to Reduce Erosion

Erosion of land and water channels
Harm to agricultural areas and crops

This issue is nationwide, but farmers in one area of Northern Wisconsin shared their experience - This was all dairy farm, so the cattle would graze in the forest. There would be trails all over. It was ideal for raising cattle because there was a lot of water available. - But, the water also made it difficult to farm and many producers gave up growing crops or hay.
