The Mohawk Valley will receive just over $1.6 million to support water quality conservation projects in the area.

The state has allocated $16.2 million to more than 90 farms through the Agricultural Nonpoint Source Abatement and Control program to address water quality challenges and protect the environment.

"New York is a leader in the fight to protect clean water, preserve agriculture for the future and combat climate change,” said Gov. Andrew Cuomo. "From our aggressive clean energy plan to environmentally responsible farm practices, we are committed to supporting projects that will protect our natural resources and ensure a better future for the next generation. This program, which paved the way for many of our other on-farm environmental protection programs, continues to help our farmers use cost-effective methods to protect our waterways."

The New York Department of Agriculture and Markets manages the Agricultural Nonpoint Source Abatement and Control Program in coordination with the New York State Soil and Water Conservation Committee. The program is a part of the state effort to help farmers create more efficient, cost-effective farming systems.
