REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio — The Ohio Department of Agriculture announced $5 million available in grants for a statewide conservation ditch program, through Gov. Mike DeWine’s H2Ohio initiative. Ohio county engineers and soil and water conservation districts are eligible to apply for funding to construct two-stage and self-forming ditches.

ODA’s Conservation Ditch program is an expansion of last year’s Two-Stage Ditch program that reserved $4 million for 11 ditch projects in northwest Ohio. More than 16,500 acres of watershed will benefit from the 8 miles of conservation ditch projects, which will be completed by the end of 2024. Projects approved in this year’s sign-up will have until the end of 2025 to be completed.
