The Land and Water Conservation Department provides technical assistance and the cost-share incentives to protect the enviroment. This is achieved through a variety of conservation practices to improve nutrient management, control soil erosion, and prevent non-point sources of pollution.

 

 

 

Financial assistance is provided to landowners through an annual cost-share program. Conservation practices focus on reducing sediment and nutrient delivery to our waters. Funding from the cost-share program may reimburse landowners for up to 70% of the project costs. 

 

Some of the conservation practices eligible for cost-share include:

  • Access Road or Cattle Crossing
  • Manure Storage Systems or Manure Storage Closure
  • Barnyard Runoff Control System
  • Diversion and Waterways
  • Grade Stabilization Structures
  • Livestock Fencing
  • Riparian Buffers
  • Roof Runoff Systems
  • Streambank and Shoreline Protection
  • Well Decommissioning
  • Wetland Restoration

-Not all of the programs and practices provided by the Land Conservation Department are listed. Please contact the department for additional information.
