rural water systems
Increasing pressure on water supplies and more stringent Federal regulations for water quality have made it difficult for many smaller communities to maintain their own public water systems. Rural water systems are often a good alternative for these communities.
Watersheds & Flood Damage Reduction
The NRD is involved in several large-scale, multi-purpose projects to improve area watersheds, involving environmental restoration, flood control, and other components.
To help conserve soil and water, the NRD offers cooperative programs for landowners to establish terraces, buffers strips, small dams, and other conservation practices.
An educated citizenry is vital to making wise choices about the conservation and protection of our natural resources. The NRD works with teachers, students and schools to bring conservation education to tomorrow’s leaders.
