Ohio Ag Connection - 02/23/2024

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Ohio Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is accepting applications from landowners interested in Emergency Watershed Protection Program – Floodplain Easements (EWPP-FPE) to protect lives and property from flooding or soil erosion. Applications for EWPP-FPE are taken on a continuous basis. The deadline to receive fiscal year 2024 funding is March 15, 2024.

A floodplain easement is a reserved interest in the land defined in a deed where the landowner conveys specific property rights to NRCS but retains ownership, title, and interest in the property. Owners will continue to enjoy limited property rights including:

The right to quiet enjoyment

The right to control public access

The right to undeveloped recreational use such as fishing or hunting.
