Thousands of landowners across Kentucky have received state assistance through the Kentucky Soil Erosion and Water Quality Cost Share program. This program assists landowners with implantation of best management practices to preserve the soil and water resources on their property.
Since the program began, more than $113 million has been approved for use in all of Kentucky’s 120 counties. The sign up period for upcoming projects has been announced as Feb. 1-28.
Best management practices that are eligible for cost share assistance include agricultural waste control facilities, animal waste utilization, heavy-use area protection, ponds and water storage practices, rotational grazing system establishment, stream crossings, stream bank stabilization, sinkhole protection, water well protection, pesticide containment facilities, pasture hay and hay land renovation, forest land erosion control systems, on farm fallen animal composting and riparian area protection.
The staff at the Carroll County Conservation District can help with information about this and other programs. The conservation district office is located at 1802 Highland Ave., Carrollton or reach them by telephone (502) 732-6098.
