Mower SWCD Use of SWCD Aid Funds
Mower SWCD will utilize SWCD Aid funding to continue and enhance conservation delivery within our county. As landowners' needs for conservation programs have increased, so has the staffing required to fulfill those requirements. Mower SWCD remains committed to delivering the highest service to our community. SWCD Aid will allow us to deliver these programs at the highest level possible.

Cost-share available for well sealing
Mower SWCD is partnering with Austin Utilities to provide cost-share assistance to landowners interested in sealing an unused or abandoned well. Cost-share is 50% of the sealing cost (up to $1,000 per well) and focused on high-priority areas of Mower County (see colored areas of map below) on a "first-come, first-served" basis.
Those interested should contact Mower SWCD's Tim Ruzek at 507-460-4577 or email@example.com.
