 WHITEWATER RIVER COST-SHARE PROGRAM

The cost-share program will provide cost-share funds to landowners located within pre-determined priority watershed areas for a variety of practices, including, but not limited to, cover crops, riparian plantings, buffer strips, water and sediment control basins, forage and biomass plantings, and nutrient management plans. Practices used to fence livestock currently accessing streams will also be funded—these include fencing, watering facilities, pipeline to watering facilities, and heavy use area pads. A small amount of funding is also available for invasive species removal and control.  Additional information can be found below:
