Kansas Conservation Projects Funded

KSAL StaffJanuary 16, 2015

Kansas has been awarded $13 million from the Agriculture Department for a multi-state project designed to improve water quality through the use of forestry practices.

The award is among 100 projects across the nation funded through the new Regional Conservation Partnership Program in the Farm Bill.

The Natural Resources Conservation Service says in a news release that the project aims to sustain reservoir storage and wildlife habitat, improve drinking water supply and boost recreational uses.

Kansas also received $2.4 million slated for irrigation water management on the High Plains Aquifer in Kansas. That project includes moisture probes and water metering that will give producers and crop consultants real-time monitoring.

Another $800,000 is going to a Kansas project to improve management of pheasant habitat.
