There will be a meeting on Tuesday, October 23 at 5 pm at Belle Mina (Tennessee Valley Research and Extension Center) on the cost-share programs (federal grants) to increase irrigation in Alabama. The meetings will be held by watersheds.
The Wheeler Lake Watershed has been selected as a starting point for a SWCC / NRCS cost-share program to expand irrigation in Alabama. Counties (or parts of counties) that are included are Lauderdale, Limestone, Lawrence, Morgan, Cullman, Marshall, Madison and Jackson.
This is the first area selected for this program that will be expanded to other parts of Alabama. This meeting is a chance to share what is needed for this program. Even if you are not in this watershed, you are welcome to attend to get a jump on the information that will eventually be shared in your watershed.
If you are not able to attend or you would like more information, contact Ashley Henderson, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Sabra Sutton email@example.com. This meeting is hosted by the Alabama Soil and Water Conservation Committee and Alabama Association of Conservation Districts.
