Urban Conservation Program

Urban landscapes generate runoff with almost every rainfall event. Conservation measures capture and infiltrate stormwater and reduce a property's contribution to water quality degradation, flashy stream flows and flooding.

“The Department has years of experience working with farmers and believes this is just the beginning of efforts to assist urban areas. Urban Conservationists will help communities install new systems and retrofit existing infrastructure in a way that will move the water off our streets while keeping soil and pollutants out of our waterways. Our goal is to have urban and rural areas working together to protect our soil and improve water quality in the state.”

Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey
