On June 26, 2019, the Natural Resources Conservation Service announced it is considering new applications for the National Water Quality Initiative’s Source Water Protection Area program. This component of NWQI began in FY2019 as a pilot program and is continuing this year, and likely into the foreseeable future. In 2018, NWQI deployed over $30 million in assistance nationally.
NWQI Source Water Protection Area projects focus on addressing specific agriculturally related source water protection needs by channeling NRCS conservation program funding to agricultural producers in identified watersheds to implement practices that help to protect sources of drinking water.
In order to assure the successful deployment of these funds to protect source waters, utilities need to come to the table locally with NRCS state technical committees and local work groups to help discuss and prioritize source water protection needs. Come to this presentation to learn about how to work with NRCS and what opportunities are out there for you to support your source water protection programs.
