USDA NRCS National Water Quality Initiative – Source Water Protection

Original Broadcast: August 1, 2018

Slide Decks:

The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and EPA have made a change to the National Water Quality Initiative (NWQI) this year (for FY ’19) that includes a new pilot program specifically aimed at protecting drinking water supplies, including groundwater. This is a great new immediate opportunity for state drinking water and source water protection programs to reach out to your NRCS State Conservationists and state Clean Water Act programs to collaborate on proposing SWP areas and specific projects for the pilot that are due by September 14, 2018.

In this webinar, NRCS and EPA staff provide an overview of the NWQI and the new Source Water Readiness Pilot. During the webinar, they will share program objectives, the process for watershed selection, and information about financial assistance, deadlines/important dates and the vision for states and other partner collaboration.

FOR MORE INFORMATION:  Please view the “Dispatch” document and read the May NRCS NWQI Bulletin.

HELPFUL RESOURCES:  Following are some resources that can help you with this collaboration, particularly if you are not already working with your State Conservationist.
