LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service is accepting applications from agricultural producers in three Arkansas watersheds in portions of Jefferson and Lincoln counties to participate in a national water quality program.

State Conservationist Mike Sullivan says applications are being accepted through Feb. 20.

Eligible producers in the Cousart Bayou-Little Cypress Bayou, Upper Deep Bayou and Lower Deep Bayou watersheds will invest in voluntary conservation actions to help provide cleaner water for their neighbors and communities. 

The NRCS manages the water quality program by making funds available to farmers, ranchers and forest landowners in the selected watersheds.
