Three VA Dam Projects Funded in 2015

NRCS is investing $19.3 million to rehabilitate three Virginia dams to protect public health, safety, and critical infrastructure in Augusta, Rockingham, and Culpeper counties, and the towns of Bridgewater and Culpeper. Selected dams are Upper North River 77 and Mountain Run 11 and 50.

Celebrate the Soil!

What we do on the land impacts our rivers and streams. Healthy soil helps regulate the flow of rain and irrigation water, holding some for plant growth and filtering out pollutants before they enter Virginia waterways. Soil health practices can help improve soil function for cleaner water.

Funds Available for Conservation Easements

NRCS is now accepting applications from VA landowners and governmental/non-governmental groups interested in protecting the state's wetlands and working farms through the Agricultural Conservation Easement Program (ACEP). The next application deadline is April 30, 2015.
