The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship is seeking applications for targeted watershed demonstration projects focused on water quality. Potential projects have until March 31 to apply for funding.

The projects must be within the nine large priority watersheds that have been identified by the Iowa Water Resources Coordinating Council, department officials say.

Project applications, including a map of priority watersheds, can be found here under “Hot Topics.” They can also be requested by contacting the department’s Division of Soil Conservation at 515-281-5851.
