A Clean Water Fund grant will allow Clearwater SWCD to offer up to 90% cost sharing and monetary incentives up to $500/acre, :depending on contract length, to landowners who establish :buffers on qualifying sites. "The goal of this grant is to protect water quality in the Clearwater River Watershed by protecting sensitive areas along lakes, streams, wetlands and other waterways," says Clearwater SWCD manager Kathy Rasch. Vegetative buffers reduce E. coli contamination and erosion by reducing and filtering runoff and stabilizing shorelines. These buffers will also improve wildlife habitat. Locations that qualify for this grant must be in the northern half of the county (Clearwater River Watershed). Landowners interested in protecting water quality on their land are encouraged to contact Clearwater SWCD to have their site(s) evaluated. Prioritization of qualifying sites will begin by June 15, so landowners should contact SWCD staff as soon as possible.

Although applications are accepted all year, farmers, ranchers and forestland owners interested in CSP should submit applications by June 14 to their local NRCS office to ensure they are considered for this year's funding. The deadline was extended from May 31. The voluntary program allows producers to go the extra mile in conserving natural resources while also maintaining or increasing the productivity of their operations. "CSP is different than our other financial assistance programs," said NRCS Acting Chief Jason Weller. "It offers payments to producers who maintain a high level of conservation on their land and agree to adopt higher levels of stewardship. It's about conservation activities on the entire operation, focusing on resource concerns." Playing a significant part in conserving and improving our nation's resources, producers enrolled an additional 12.1 million acres in CSP last year, bringing the total number of acres to more than 50 million. Many of the CSP enhancements improve soil quality, which helps land become more resilient to extreme weather. Severalotherimprovements are available for producers, including intensive rotational grazing, intercropping and wildlife-friendly fencing. Because of the extreme weather in 2012, more interest and participation in the cover crop enhancements is expected this year, according to NRCS experts. A CSP self-screening checklist is available to help producers determine if the program is suitable for their operation. The checklist highlights basic information about CSP eligibility requirements, stewardship threshold requirements and payment types. For the checklist and additional information, visit the CSP website or visit your local USDA NRCS office. at 218-694-6845 to arrange a site evaluation.
