The Barton County Conservation District started its annual cost share sign-up on April 5, and it will end May 6.
Practices available for cost share under the Water Resources Cost Share Program include new terraces, waterways, reconstruction of waterways, diversions, critical area planting, range seeding, pasture/hayland seeding, stock water wells, tanks, solar panels and pipelines for distribution of grazing, tree plantings, and field windbreaks.
The Non-Point Source Pollution Program provides cost share funds for cover crop seeding, nutrient management soil testing, livestock waste systems, stock water wells, tanks, solar panels, pipelines, and spring developments for distribution of grazing and replacing failing on-site septic systems.
This is an excellent opportunity to receive assistance in completing some much needed conservation practices. Funding is provided by the State Conservation Commission through appropriation from the Kansas Water Plan Fund for the Water Resources and Non-Point Source Pollution Programs.
Due to COVID 19 you will need to call the Conservation District office to set up an appointment to come in or we can email and visit over the phone. Call 620-792-3346 ext. 303 for more information or to sign up.
