I probably will get slammed some for this, but I'm on that list. Being in the Cheasapeake watershed isn't always easy, and we have been targeted for pollution controls by the greenies and ZEPA and even the law classes at the U of Md.
If NRCS can help with a solution, such as a waterway or stream buffers, they are often willing to fund it. I still have to borrow the money to put the practice in, even though I may feel I don't need it, and they will cost share it, sometimes to 87 1/2% of the cost. But we are also leaders in many programs to reduce nutrients and soil from getting into the waterway.

I will not argue that some programs just don't make sense- some don't. But many that I have put in have been good for me and the envirionment, and quite frankly, may have not have been put in if I had to totally fund them.

It is hard, sometimes. to realize that what I do here on my acreage, when combined with other farms, can be determental to downstream towns, cities and populated areas, as well as the Bay. They merely get me to put in some pollution controls to decrease the TMDL from this place by helping me to put them in now, and in turn, I worry less about what some skivvie waver may claim is fouling his bath water.

Citidiots have too much time on their hands, and are constantly trying to find something to complain about. If I can prove to them it's not my chit, they go away happy.....
