Pumped Well Drain (532): A well sunk into an aquifer from which water is
pumped to lower the prevailing water table.
Establishing adapted plants by seeding on na-
tive grazing land (does not include pasture and
Increased erosion and sediment yield may occur during the establishment of this
practice. This is a temporary situation and
yields decrease when re-
seeded area becomes established. If chemicals are used in the
process, chances of chemical runoff

Rangeland Fertilization (203):
Regulating Water in Drainage Systems (554): Controlling the
removal of sur-
face or subsurface runoff, primarily through the operation of water-control struc-
Riparian Forest Buffer (Field Windbreak) (392): A strip or belt of trees or
shrubs established in or adjacent to a field.
Rock Barrier (555): A rock retaining wall constructed across the slope to form
and support a bench terrace that will control the flow of water and check erosion
on sloping land.
Roof Runoff Management (558): A facility for controlling and disposing of
runoff water from roofs.
This practice may reduce erosion and the delivery of seditnenr and related sub-
waters. It will reduce the volume of water polluted by animal

Runoff Management System (570): A system for controlling excess runoff
caused by construction operations at development sites, changes in land use, or
other land disturbances.
Sediment Basin (350): A basin constructed to collect and store debris or sedi-
basins will retnove sediment, sediment associated materials and other
water which is passed on downstream. Due to

Soil and Crop Water Use Data: From soils information the available
holding capacity of the soil can be determined along with the amount of water
that the plant can extract from the soil before additional irrigation is needed.
