The USDA is using over $100 million dollars to address water quality issues and bolster local economies

Federal officials say The Mississippi River Basin Healthy Watershed Initiative seeks in part to work with local farmers to make lands more resilient in face of droughts and floods, cut back on the loss of soil nutrients and curb erosion. The agency’s Natural Resources Conservation Service is working on 13 existing projects and to create 27 new watersheds.
