This plan shall include, but not be limited to, methods to eliminate access of the Department's livestock to streams, creeks and other waterways; the creation of riparian buffers along these streams; and methods to ensure the appropriate use of fertilizers, pesticides and other chemicals on Department-owned or cultivated properties. This plan shall maximize the use of inmate labor in implementing best management practices.
