NHC-Water Quality Improvement Program

Large House with a LawnThis program supports the unincorporated areas of the county with a 50% matching based funding program. NHC will provide up to half of the funding to install an approved Best Management Practice (BMP) device. These devices include rain gardens, swales, cisterns, etc. The goal of the NHC-WQIP is to reduce stormwater pollution in our local creeks to improve water quality!

Funding is specifically for residents in the unincorporated part of the county only. These are residents who do not pay property taxes to a municipality. Interested parties can choose to match 50% of the funds though a monetary payment or pay-in-kind through assisted labor during installation of the BMP. You can choose to be as hands-on or hands -off as you like with the installation!

To apply for the program, fill out the following form. Including pictures of problem areas on your property will also help us understand what stormwater issues you may need help mitigating. Please feel free to include any photos or videos when you send in the application. Send the application to the Soil and Water Department.
