Program areas at WAC

Watershed agricultural program (wap) - works with individual farmers on a voluntary basis to create and implement whole farm plans designed to mitigate nonpoint-source water pollution from farming activities.

Watershed forestry program (wfp) - works with forest landowners, forestors, and loggers on a voluntary basis to develop and implement forest management plans. The plans give landowners an opportunity to learn about the important resource they own and its many values such as lumber, firewood, aesthetics, habitat, open space recreation, etc.

Conservation easement program (cep) - works to conserve farm and forest land by purchasing the development right to these lands. Permanent protection of this "underdeveloped" land through conservation easements is ultimately the most lasting water quality protection.
