The Watershed Protection Committee of Racine County (WPCR) consists of a group of local farmers leading efforts in erosion control, water and soil quality improvements, and providing information to farmers and rural landowners on conservation practices.
The Watershed Protection Committee of Racine County works collaboratively on a producer led water quality protection project in the Eagle Creek, Hoosier Creek, Wind Lake Drainage Canal, West Branch Root River Canal, Village of Union Grove West Branch Root River Canal and Goose Lake Branch Canal watersheds to achieve improved water quality. The WPCR will lead these efforts by reaching out to farmers and providing incentive payments for conservation practices to promote soil and water health.

WPCR members have varying types of farming operations. Each brings a unique perspective and understanding of conservation practices.
