The Cherokee Soil & Water Conservation District is presently taking applications for cost share funding on grassed waterways for 2010 construction.
Landowners can receive cost share assistance on earthwork, tile installation, and tile outlets. The maximum cost share for a project is $8000.
Constructed waterways provide numerous benefits including controlled conveyance of surface runoff, improved water quality, habitat for wildlife, and increased property value.
Landowners who are interested in building waterways this spring should apply as soon as possible at the local USDA Service Center, 314 Lake Street in Cherokee. For more information, call 225-3769.
