Building on ongoing collaborative efforts in the Mississippi River Basin, Chesapeake Bay and other geographic initiatives, NRCS will focus water quality conservation investments through its state and local network of conservation partners in one to three jointly identified critical sub-watersheds in each state. In FY 2014, NRCS Florida will work in the same watersheds approved for FY 2012.
