Streambank Stabilization A portion of the Parks, Soils and Water Sales Tax is used for Missouri landowners to install soil and water conservation practices through the state cost-share program. These practices conserve soil, which consequently improves water quality by reducing sedimentation in rivers and streams.

How will these practices benefit you?

  • Keep your valuable topsoil by reducing soil erosion
  • Get the best use of your natural water resources and protect them from pollutants
  • Develop the best nutrient and pest management plan for your needs with less runoff, therefore, protecting local streams
  • Install a rotational grazing system that benefits your livestock, water resources, land  and time
  • Through irrigation, efficiently and uniformly apply water to control runoff and conserve water supplies and appropriately apply nutrients and chemicals. 
  • Recycle animal waste for use on agricultural land
  • Protect your groundwater
