Property owners have until June 15 to apply for financial assistance in improving their land in one of four impaired Nebraska watersheds.
The money comes from a national program that's managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service.
Landowners will be able to invest in conservation practices that will help provide cleaner water for their neighbors and communities.
The conservation service will provide money and expertise to landowners who opt for conservation practices such as cover crops, filter strips, terraces and other erosion controls.
The four watersheds are Cottonwood Creek in Saunders County; Holmes Creek/Conestoga Reservoir in Seward and Lancaster counties; Upper Cub Creek in Jefferson County; and Big Indian Creek in Gage County.
