Agricultural producers in Cascade, Chouteau, Daniels, Fergus, Judith Basin, Petroleum, Roosevelt, and Sheridan counties can sign up for the Environmental Quality Incentive Program to reclaim saline seeps at their local USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) office between May 15 and June 14, 2019.

The Montana Salinity Control Association will conduct an initial site review with the producer to determine whether saline seeps are caused by current farming practices and/or rule out those that form naturally with little to no influence from surface land use.
