Water Quality

Tuttle Creek Landowner Survey

In the winter of 2014, a series of mailings were sent to Kansas landowners in the Tuttle Creek Reservoir drainage area asking about preferences for and against the presence of trees along a creek and/or river on their property. This was the result of a joint research project between Kansas State University and the University of Missouri examining/investigating the opinions of landowners for and against streamside trees located next to their crop fields. Often, trees are promoted in these areas because of their environmental benefits such as water quality and quantity, yet there are numerous factors that landowners must consider before adopting this practice.
