Stream system restoration funds available


Kansas

Natural Resources Conservation Service State Conservationist Eric B. Banks, Salina, announced the availability of funding for Kansas landowners to address soil erosion and streambank resource concerns under the new Environmental Quality Incentives Program Stream System Restoration ranking category. According to Banks, this funding will be used to stabilize and protect banks of streams damaged by erosion in the Phenis Creek-Cottonwood River watershed, located in Lyon County. Applications must be received by Feb. 15.

"Through stream restoration, the primary goals are cleaner water, stable banks, and improved habitat for aquatic life and wildlife," said Banks.

Conservation practices available to landowners through the Stream System Restoration include: Streambank and Shoreline Protection, Mulching, Riparian Forest Buffers, Critical Area Planting, and other associated practices. Interested participants are encouraged to visit their local NRCS field office to learn more about the assistance available.

EQIP offers financial and technical assistance to eligible participants to install or implement structural and management practices on eligible agricultural land. Conservation practices must be implemented to NRCS standards and specifications. In Kansas, socially disadvantaged, limited resource, and beginning farmers and ranchers will receive a higher payment rate for eligible conservation practices applied.

For additional information specific to Stream System Restoration, or to sign an application, stop by your U.S. Department of Agriculture Service Center and visit with the NRCS staff. For more information about other natural resources conservation programs, please contact your local NRCS office or conservation district office. The office is located at your local USDA Service Center (listed in the telephone book under United States Government or on the internet at offices.usda.gov). More information is also available on the Kansas website at www.ks.nrcs.usda.gov. Follow us on Twitter @NRCS_Kansas.
