District Implementation Cost-Share Program

Are you interested in converting your irrigation system from rill to sprinkler or drip irrigation? Or install gated pipe instead of using siphon tubes? Depending on funding,  we can reimburse landowners for the implementation of these and other on-farm projects that improve water quality.
Projects are ranked according to the water quality and soil savings benefits. While funding guidelines may change from year-to-year (depending on the grant-funding source), typically the highest ranked projects receive 50% of the cost of the project; $1,000 per acre not to exceed $10,000.                                                          

The yearly grant cycle is from July 1st to June 30th.                               

To apply, call Landon Schilperoort at 829-9025 or stop in the office and pick up an application.
