BOISE, Idaho — Four water conservation projects in Idaho will share $6.9 million in U.S. Department of Agriculture funding.
The USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service Chief Dave White announced the funding. Nearly $58 million is being distributed nationwide for water quality and conservation projects on agricultural land.
In Idaho, the money will go to improve irrigation efficiency in the Thorn Creek watershed project in Gooding County and the Pilger Project in Lincoln County. A project to conserve groundwater in the Eastern Snake River Plain Aquifer will also get funding, as will the Portneuf Marsh Valley Canal Company in Bannock County to line canals with concrete and reduce seepage.
