While this website aims to provide information to assist in water management decision-making, it is not a technical guide. Growers and ranchers should consult with their Farm Advisor, local Resource Conservation District, Natural Resource Conservation Service, or other technical support entities before implementing significant changes in farm practices.

This website does not constitute a comprehensive list of water stewardship practices. It is a work in progress and we anticipate expanding the content over time as new practices and information emerge. Please contact us with any information you would like us to consider adding to the website and check back periodically for additional content.
