Land Resources  

Goal:  The land resources of the Juniata watershed should be utilized efficiently to ensure sustainable productivity of food and fiber while reducing soil erosion and keeping fertilizers and chemicals in the soil rather than in streams or ground water.  High-risk land areas such as floodplains, wetlands, and steep slopes ought to be restricted to low-impact land uses.
