The Regional Water Resource Projects of the NIFA National Integrated Water Quality Program ensures the integration of water resource efforts within the jurisdiction of each of the ten regions established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). They make research, education, and extension resources of the university system more accessible to Federal, State, and local water resources improvement efforts. Through these projects, new or expanded opportunities develop for agricultural producers and agriculturally impacted communities to adopt voluntary approaches for the improvement of water resources. They promote delivery of multi-state programming to address regional and/or multiregional water quality concerns.
