United States : Sign-up deadline announced for Missouri's Water Quality Initiative.

The USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) announced that landowners have until April 15 to request aid through the National Water Quality Initiative (NWQI) to enhance water quality in three watersheds in Missouri.

State Conservationist J.R. Flores said that NRCS will offer financial and technical support to assist farmers and ranchers in the three watersheds in installing conservation practices that manage nutrients, pathogens and sediments.

Among the watersheds are : Upper Troublesome Creek (Knox and Lewis counties), Givins Branch Niangua River (Webster and Dallas counties) and Basin Fork (Pettis and Johnson counties).

Flores said,"We look forward to continuing NWQI efforts in Upper Troublesome Creek while beginning new work in Niangua River and Basin Fork watersheds. Last year, we completed projects in two watersheds and were fortunate to receive funding for two new sites in 2016. The funding available to landowners will assist in providing measured reduction of nutrients and sediments in our states water sources."
