OGWRP Watershed Planning Project (PL-566)

The East Columbia Basin Irrigation District (ECBID) and the Grant County Conservation District (GCCD), and your legislators have received funding through USDA Farm Bill conservation programs, specifically, the NRCS PL-566 Watershed Program to help implement the next and final phases of OGWRP.
