The United State Department of Agriculture is making federal funds available to farmers, ranchers, and forestry producers interested in implementing water conservation programs. Producers who live in the Indian Bayou Watershed--which consists of Lafayette, Vermilion, and Acadia Parishes--are eligible to register for this voluntary program. The USDA says the program will help improve water quality in the area. Applications for the current ranking period are due at the Alexandria USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service Office by March 15.
