National Water Quality Initiative


In partnership with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) National Water Quality Initiative (NWQI), we are taking a local approach to improve water quality by gathering your feedback to drive voluntary, on-farm soil and water conservation in our community. 


NWQI emphasizes working with landowners and producers to identify resource concerns on their land and generates resources for people in the watershed to address those resource concerns.

The Spring Creek-Union Flat watershed has a rich history of agricultural productivity and innovation. With 94% of land use dedicated to dryland agriculture, the adoption of management practices can have a significant influence on water quality.


However, conservation efforts in this watershed are primarily dependent on landowner and producer engagement and we are looking for your input to shape the future planning efforts in the area.   

If you live in this watershed we want to hear from you! Please give us your feedback with a brief survey.
