Source Water Protection Webcast

Tuesday, October 8

11:30 am-1 pm

1.5 hours of TCEQ credit requested

The latest farm bill, the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, authorizes increased Regional Conservation Partnership Program funding and mandates that 10 percent of funds authorized for conservation programs must be used to protect sources of drinking water.

It also increases incentives for agricultural producers to implement practices that benefit source water protection and authorizes community water systems to work with state technical committees for agricultural programs to identify local priorities for source water protection.

Texas AWWA and the Texas USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service are partnering to familiarize water utilities and the agricultural community about available grants and partnering opportunities to improve source water protection in Texas. These conservation efforts are important to everyone who depends on clean water for agriculture and drinking water in Texas.

This webcast will provide a review of USDA programs in Texas and how utilities and landowners can partner to improve source water protection through available grant funding.
