Conservation Effects Assessment Project FAQs
Why should I participate in CEAP?
Your response will help:
- Capture producers' current efforts to help protect soil and water resources and provide a complete picture of conservation practices in the California Bay-Delta watershed area, comprised of the Sacramento River Watershed, the San Joaquin River Watershed, and the Tulare Lake Basin Watershed.
- Provide the information needed to determine the effects of conservation practices commonly used on irrigated and non-irrigated cropland related to water conservation and water quality enhancement.
- Capture the efforts farmers and ranchers currently make to enhance fish and wildlife habitat restoration and identify potential gains of additional treatment.
- Maintain conservation programs that benefit producers by protecting the environment upon which their livelihood depends and providing financial incentives that can help their bottom line.
