You can also add the Iowa NRCS conservation easements in the Iowa Map Viewer.
Clark Porter
44:30
I would like to see the layers he used again.
Steve Konrady
44:37
Are there any soil mapping tools that would help as well?
Darrick
45:05
Yes, you can add soils in the Iowa Map Viewer as well
Darrick
46:22
We can go through the layers we use again at the very end of the presentation. If anyone has an oxbow in mind, find it on the Iowa Map Viewer and be ready to share the link.

Amber Hershey
01:20:30
Do landowners seem open to tree removal as part of an oxbow restoration? How do you help educate them that this would be beneficial?
Brandon
01:20:52
We will talk more about seedings later on in the presentation.

Any design recommendations for oxbows created by a straightened stream (old streambed restoration)? Also - any unique recommendations for tile -fed oxbows?
peggy.rash
02:26:22
Clay, what did the seeding plan look like?
peggy.rash
02:26:30
Sorry, Clint.
peggy.rash
02:26:56
Thanks.
Amber Hershey
02:27:49
Is there a minimum buffer width you would recommend between a restored oxbow and adjacent farm field to prevent sedimentation?
Amber Hershey
02:29:33
Have you faced challenges restoring oxbows along significantly incised streams (getting the hydrology in the oxbows)? In these cases, would you still excavate to native stream bed, or would you excavate to the nearest pool depth of the stream?
Brandon

Do you face any challenges restoring oxbows that are currently mapped as wetland? (Excavation to mitigate for reed canary grass, etc.)
Colton Meyer
02:55:41
Can anyone seine an oxbow to conduct fish surveys or is a special license or permit required?
Emery.Davis
02:59:03
How do you monitor N removal? Tile inflow is untreated. Treated water would be found where?

J.Thompson
03:06:31
Have you done any projects to adjust water levels? To promote vegetation, or water for migrating birds?-Using Water control structures?
Ryan Schmidt
03:07:09
How long do you expect the restored depth of the oxbow to last before it silts in excessively again? What is the expected average life span of our oxbow restoration work? Plenty of variables I'm sure.

For IDALS wetlands, we aim for the tile outlet to be one foot above normal pool elevation. Would the same standards be recommended for oxbows fed by tile?
Darrick
03:17:03
Here's a link to NWP 27: https://www.swf.usace.army.mil/Portals/47/docs/regulatory/Permitting/Nationwide/NWP27.pdf
Clark Porter
03:17:33
Have you ever excavated an oxbow deeper than the adjoining creek bed elevation in order to accommodate tile outlets, expected sedimentation, or other variables?
tcloving
03:21:07
I was at a field day last month where I thought Bill Crumptom said oxbow restoration could take care of Iowa’s nutrient problem in surface water. I am not sure about this, but aren’t oxbows a “no-regrets” policy aside from that? They are on marginal farming land; they enhance wildlife; they mitigate flooding. Given that, should we be lobbying for paying more than a 100% for oxbow restoration? What is your take on the value of oxbows to society at large?
Clark Porter
03:23:23
If the landowner has dumped soil and other debris in spots between the oxbow and the creek, would removal be recommended during restoration?
