Mississippi River Basin Improvements Announced

USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service and partners to invest $32 million.

Published on: May 23, 2012

Water quality initiatives are popular with USDA these days. After a significant national program announced to upgrade smaller projects across the country, USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service and Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack announced $32 million in financial support and assistance for five water water quality and wetlands improvement projects in seven Mississippi River Basin states.

"These projects are great examples of USDA working with partners to improve water quality in the Mississippi River Basin," Vilsack said. "Through these projects, agricultural producers are voluntarily taking action to restore and protect wetlands on private lands in watersheds that USDA has identified as being critical to water quality restoration in the basin."
