Emergency Watershed Protection Program and Flood Prevention Program

Under the Watershed Program, NRCS joined with local people to help plan and install projects that increase flood protection, control erosion and enhance water quality, water supply and water-related recreation.  The law was used to supplement and bridge the gap between ongoing soil and water conservation programs to develop and protect watersheds.

A floodwater retarding structure will reduce downstream flooding.
