MADISON - The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) extended the sign-up period until April 10 for funding available to eligible landowners through the floodplain easement component of the Emergency Watershed Protection (EWP). "This funding is important to help revitalize our economy and at the same time recover land damaged or threatened by flooding," said NRCS State Conservationist Pat Leavenworth. The purpose of the funding is to restore frequently flooded land to its natural state and create jobs.
