2010 Mississippi River Basin Healthy Watershed Initiative Projects

MRBI Project Areas in Arkansas


Six projects selected in fiscal year 2010 in Arkansas will help landowners and producers within the Mississippi River Basin voluntarily implement conservation and management practices that prevent, control and trap nutrient runoff from agricultural land.

“The projects selected in Arkansas will be implemented working with our conservation partners to accelerate conservation treatment to improve water quality, maintain productivity and enhance wildlife habitat,” said NRCS State Conservationist Michael Sullivan.  “Additional funding for the six Arkansas projects could exceed $30 million over the 5-year project’s life.”

Overall, more than $22 million nationally in Cooperative Conservation Partnership Initiative (CCPI) funds will be administered through the Conservation Stewardship Program, Environmental Quality Incentives Program and the Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program.
