Water quality initiative to improve watersheds

— A national water quality initiative has been launched to improve impaired watersheds in two Arkansas counties.

State Conservationist Mike Sullivan announced the initiative on Tuesday.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service will provide funding to farmers, ranchers and forest landowners in selected watersheds within the Bayou Bartholomew watershed in Jefferson and Lincoln counties.

As part of the program, eligible producers in the Cousart Bayou-Little Cypress Bayou, Upper Deep Bayou and Lower Deep Bayou watersheds will invest in voluntary conservation actions to help provide cleaner water.

The areas were chosen because of the high amount of sediment and phosphorous concentration that flow into tributaries of the Bayou Bartholomew watershed.

In other words, they want to subsidize farmers not to till or plant acreage.
