It's a messy point to make, but Holly Hatlewick, manager of the Renville County Soil and Water Conservation District, made it by showing the different water infiltration rates in soils that range from low to high in organic content. She used a rainfall simulator to show that cover crops increase organic matter and the health of soil during a presentation last week to 75 to 80 attendees of an event in Renville.

Streambank erosion remains a concern in Hawk Creek, which flows 65 miles from its start at Eagle Lake in Kandiyohi County to its confluence with the Minnesota River near the Upper Sioux Agency State Park. Large quantities of water at high velocity erode the banks during rain events and snowmelt periods.
