National Water Quality Initiative - Wisconsin

The USDA's National Water Quality Initiative is committed to improving impaired waterways throughout the nation.  Three watersheds have been selected in Wisconsin. USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will manage the initiative by making funds available to farmers and forest landowners in the selected watersheds to begin needed conservation practices to reduce sediment and nutrients entering the waterway.
