April 7, 2023

The UMRBA Water Quality Executive Committee provides suggestions to the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) for improving NRCS's Mississippi River Basin Healthy Watersheds Initiative (MRBI) and the National Water Quality Initiative (NWQI).  These comments were provided in response to NRCS's request for comments.

In particular, the letter calls for improving connection to state and local watershed plans, efficiency in applications, and planning assistance.
