Purpose-To conserve moisture, prevent surface compaction or crusting, reduce runoff and erosion, control weeds and help establish plant cover. A cost-share rate of 70% of the county average cost not to exceed 70% of the actual cost of weed barrier fabric.  -top-

Pasture and Hayland Planting
Purpose-To reduce erosion and to adjust land use. A cost-share rate of 70% of the county average cost not to exceed 70% of the actual cost for brome or native grass seeding.  -top-

Pipeline
Purpose-To convey water from a source of supply to points of use. A cost-share rate of 70% of the county average cost not to exceed 70% of the actual cost for pipe and other components associated with pipe installation.  -top-

Pond and/or Pond Restoration
Purpose-To provide water for livestock and to maintain or improve water quality. Note: All livestock water supply practices must be constructed or installed to serve pastures 40 acres or larger. Practices may be installed in pastures less than 40 acres when livestock are excluded from a stream. A cost-share rate of 70% of the county average cost not to exceed 50% of the actual cost for pipe, earthwork, etc. $5,000 maximum payment limit.  -top-

Pumping Plant for Water Supply
Purpose-To provide a power source for a dependable alternative water source for livestock that have typically watered from a natural stream and thereby improve and protect the water quality of that stream. A cost-share rate of 70% of the county average cost not to exceed 70% of the actual cost for solar pump and solar panels.  -top-

Range Seeding
Purpose-To reduce soil and water loss and to improve water quality. A cost-share rate of 70% of the county average cost not to exceed 70% of the actual cost for native grass seeding.  -top-

Sediment Control Basin
Purpose-To abate pollution by providing basins for deposition and storage of sediment and agricultural wastes as part of a livestock waste management program.  -top-

Spring Development
Purpose-To improve the distribution of and to increase quantity of water for livestock. A cost-share rate of 70% of the county average cost not to exceed 70% of the actual cost for collection and delivery.  -top-

Streambank and Shoreline Protection
Purpose-To stabilize the eroding streambanks, reduce damage from sediment and runoff to downstream areas and improve wildlife habitat. A cost-share rate of 70% of the county average cost not to exceed 70% of the actual cost for shaping, anchors, clamps and tree plantings.  -top-

Subsurface Drain
Purpose-To improve the soil environment for vegetative growth by regulating the water table and groundwater, alleviating seepage problems; and to remove surface runoff. A cost-share rate of 70% of the county average cost not to exceed 70% of the actual cost of pipe.  -top-

Tank or Trough
Purpose-To provide watering facilities for livestock at selected locations that will protect vegetative cover through proper distribution of grazing or through better grassland management for erosion control.
