  • Utilize the CAP 130- Drainage Water Management Plan offered by the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) and Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) in Yellow Medicine County to design your next drainage system with conservation in mind. The CAP 130- Drainage Water Management Plan is a conservation activity plan with the objective to control soil water table elevations and the timing of water discharges from subsurface or surface agricultural drainage systems. The CAP 130 plan includes a tile plan, design, and recommendations to more effectively control your drainage water. Only certified Technical Service Providers (TSPs) may be used to develop the CAP 130 plan. A list of certified TSPs can be found on http://techreg.usda.gov. Both the NRCS & SWCD offer programs that provide financial assistance to help with the cost of the CAP 130 plan.
    After completion of the CAP 130 plan you may be eligible for financial assistance for installing control structures and/or denitrifying bioreactors. NRCS also provides an incentive payment for operating your tile system according to the recommendations in your CAP 130 plan. The plan must comply with all state and federal wetland regulations.
