Master Joint Powers Agreement (MJPA) Information

BWSR has historically provided payments to SWCDs for easement acquisition costs ($2000/easement) and site inspection costs ($40-$50/easement) through a grant process. We are changing the process to improve accountability and tracking. We will now be utilizing a Master Joint Powers Agreement between each SWCD and BWSR instead of through the previous grant process.
