The NWQI supports voluntary farm conservation projects that focus on water quality improvements. These include practices to promote soil health, reduce erosion and lessen nutrient runoff. These practices benefit natural resources along with enhancing agricultural productivity and profitability. The NWQI project involves field surveys with landowners to identify current conditions and develop plans to use NRCS practices to improve water quality conditions. The NWQI project area is from the mouth/confluence with the Walla Walla River up to the confluence with Blue Creek.
This survey was developed to capture landowners’ familiarity with NRCS Conservation Practices, willingness to participate in the practices, and barriers associated with adopting the programs. This survey’s purpose is also to capture any gaps in land use practices that could be addressed with programs and cost share from the District . Your responses will help the Walla Walla County Conservation District modify programs to benefit landowners like you.
