Current Project List

NPEA Program

Staff of the Non-Point Engineering Assistance Program (NPEAP) provides conservation engineering assistance to Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs) that are members of Joint Powers Boards (JPB).  The engineering assistance is typically utilized for the construction of eligible best management practices (BMPs) that protect and conserve water and soil resources of member SWCDs in order to meet their program needs in the area of nonpoint source pollution abatement. Staff provides wide range of technical assistance and leadership in regard to evaluation, design, and construction of eligible BMPs.  The JPB works as a team member with conservation partners - specifically member SWCDs, the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources, and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service.
