Abstract: This Natural Resource Plan was developed to analyze the benefits and impacts of on-farm conservation practices, which could be utilized to address the declining groundwater, supply currently being utilized as an irrigation source for a large area of eastern Arkansas. This plan covers only the on-farm portion of the project and will be included as a part of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to be completed at a later date, which will include a surface water delivery system. It also includes provisions for utilizing the project components to provide waterfowl feeding and resting areas, fish habitat, and additional habitat for shore birds during the fall and winter months. Recommended solutions to identified problems, opportunities, and environmental impacts are included in this document. Alternatives considered during plan formulation were a no action alternative, a conservation/storage alternative, an alternate surface source alternative, a combination conservation/storage/alternate surface source alternative, and an alternate groundwater source alternative. The recommended plan is the combination conservation/storage/alternate surface source alternative.
