Eligible landowners in Daggett, Duchesne, Uintah, Carbon, and Emery Counties have until July 12th to apply for funding through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Environmental Quality Incentives Program. “The Colorado River and its tributaries provide municipal and industrial water to about 27 million people and irrigation water to nearly four million acres of land in the United States,” shares the announcement. “Elevated salinity in the river results in significant damage to agricultural, municipal, and industrial water users. Salinity projects promote irrigation system improvements on the land to reduce deep percolation and subsequent salt loading in the Colorado River…Producers must have farm records current with the Farm Service Agency and submit a complete program application to be considered. Interested producers are encouraged to contact their local USDA Service Center for assistance.” Applications are due by July 12th. Information on how to apply is available at
