The Emergency Watershed Protection Program – Floodplain Easement (EWP-FPE) offers landowners and managers impacted by flooding events the opportunity to restore and protect riparian areas.  A major goal of EWP-FPE is to restore the land to its natural condition, while providing as much flood storage and control as possible.  Floodplain easements restore, protect, maintain and enhance the functions of prairie and converted prairie floodplains while conserving the natural values such as serving as fish and wildlife habitat, improving water quality, retaining flood water and recharging groundwater.  

This presentation will focus on the purpose and benefits of the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service Emergency Watershed Protection – Floodplain Easement program. The intent of the presentation is to spark interest in participating in floodplain easement opportunities with private landowners and nonprofit organizations.
