Information on Your Waushara County
In 2015, as in years past, Waushara County landowners received cost-sharing to help defray costs of construction and implementation of best management practices (BMP’s). Grants for cost-sharing are available through the Waushara County (WQIP) program and from Land and Water Resource Management (LWRM) funds, which constitute state grant monies.
The Land and Water Resource Management (LWRM) has approximately $52,000 available in 2016 for structural practices funding and the Waushara County (WQIP) program has $25,000.in structural practice bond funding available. After sign-up, projects are rated and ranked according to priority resource concerns for both cost-sharing programs.
For example, in 2015 a few of the cost-shared practices included wetland restorations, windbreak plantings, grassed waterways, and a manure storage structure.
