CCPI Mississippi River Basin Healthy Watersheds Initiative in Missouri

 

To improve the health of the Mississippi River Basin, including water quality and wildlife habitat, NRCS developed the Mississippi River Basin Healthy Watershed Initiative (MRBI). Through MRBI, NRCS and its conservation partners will help producers in previously-selected watersheds voluntarily implement conservation practices that avoid, control and trap runoff, while maintaining agricultural productivity and improving wildlife habitat.

Currently there are multiple active MRBI projects in Missouri. Local sponsors have solicited the support of many different partners and watershed stakeholders throughout these watersheds to implement locally derived conservation objectives. MRBI projects (watershed projects listed below) provide multi-year opportunities and eligible producers must develop contracts by visiting their local USDA Service Center.

The following links provide CCPI-MRBI-specific FY15 information for these active projects in Missouri.
