The goal of the National Integrated Water Quality Program is to improve the quality of our Nation's surface water and groundwater resources through research, education, and extension activities.
Projects funded through this program will facilitate achieving this goal by advancing and disseminating
the knowledge base available to agricultural and rural communities.
Funded projects should lead to science-based decision-making and management practices that improve the quality of the Nation's surface water and groundwater resources in agricultural and rural watersheds.
