A major cause of water quality problems in North Carolina and throughout the United States is nonpoint source pollution which comes from many sources including construction sites, cities and towns, and agriculture. To assist in conserving our natural resources locally, the Harnett Soil & Water Conservation District Office is currently accepting applications for the North Carolina Agriculture Cost Share Program. The Agriculture Cost Share Program (ACSP) is a voluntary incentive based program for farmers or agricultural landowners that assists them in being proactive against nonpoint source pollution by implementing best management practices (BMP’s) to assist with natural resource concerns on the land.
