Now, we talked about tailwater recovery systems; the good news is that there's several cost-sharing or financial assistance programs available for such a practice.
One is through the Arkansas Natural Resource Commission [Picture of a tailwater recovery system. Income Tax Credit - Arkansas Natural Resources Commission]. You can get state income tax credit for putting in a water impoundment like a tailwater recovery system.

The second is federal financial assistance programs, and these are usually administered by the Natural Resources Conservation Service, or NRCS, or sometimes the Farm Service Agency, or FSA.
[Picture of equipment digging a ditch. Get cost-share approval before starting.] One word of caution on any of these programs is that you have to be approved before you start any construction or moving any earth in putting these practices out.
[Mike Daniels - Professor of Environmental Management] So just make sure that if you're going to do this, apply and be accepted first before you start any implementation of these practices.
