North St. Louis Soil & Water Conservation District refers persons with agricultural land to the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. For assistance with federal agriculture based cost-share programs, please contact Jon Sellnow, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Services at 218-720-5209.
The Minnesota Agricultural Water Quality Certification Program (MAWQCP) is a voluntary opportunity for farmers and agricultural landowners to take the lead in implementing conservation practices that protect our water. Those who implement and maintain approved farm management practices will be certified and in turn obtain regulatory certainty for a period of ten years. Contact our office for more information.
