The federal Farm Bill that's now been signed into law includes provisions to protect water quality. In Lake Erie, agriculture is one of the primary sources of nutrients that leads to toxic algae.  There’s more funding in the new Farm Bill to protect critical conservation areas including western Lake Erie, Saginaw Bay and Green Bay.  Farmers upstream from those watersheds may get more help implementing voluntary programs like cover crops that help prevent nutrient runoff.
