Emergency Watershed Protection Program

The purpose of the Emergency Watershed Protection Program (EWPP) program is to undertake emergency measures, including the purchase of flood plain easements, for runoff retardation and soil erosion prevention to safeguard lives and property from floods, drought, and the products of erosion on any watershed whenever fire, flood or any other natural occurrence is causing or has caused a sudden impairment of the watershed. The EWP program relies on federal funding, which has been limited in recent years.
