Non-point Source (NPS) and Water Resources (WR)


"Much of today's water pollution occurs because of runoff from nonpoint sources--city streets, parking lots, farms, construction sites, and logging and mining operations. Pollutants in such runoff include sediment; pesticides and fertilizers from agriculture, lawns, parks,...This kind of water pollution, called nonpoint source pollution, affects both surface water and ground water and is far harder to control... simply because the origin of the contaminants cannot be pinpointed."

NPS Practices Available for Cost Share Assistance


A Contract is between the Division of Conservation, Kansas Department of Agriculture (referred to as the DOC) and the landowner(s). County average cost and cost-share rate, will not exceed the landowner actual cost. County average cost is used as a basis for determining the amount of cost-share assistance earned. Cost-share is also determined based upon availability of funds, project type limits, and landowner limits. A landowner will not be reimbursed more than 100% of the landowner actual cost for a project. The district uses a ranking worksheet to determine eligibility. More information is available at the Eureka Conservation Office.
