Dear Water Institute Affiliated Faculty

Tuesday Feb 27 from 3:30 to 5 we will be meeting to coordinate a group
that will develop research, extension, education ideas for the USDA RFP
included below, leveraging data and work developed in the Ichetucknee
springshed / Santa Fe basin.

We hope to leverage work being done on the funded Santa Fe basin
Hydrologic Observatory Testbed http://suwanneeho.ifas.ufl.edu/ as well
expertise in the Ichetucknee Springs working group, SRWMD, FDACS, IFAS
extension and FDEP.

If you are interested and/or have research / extension / education
interests in this basin, please let us know and if you are able to join
this meeting.

The proposal is due April 4th.

Thank you,

Kathleen McKee

USDA/CSREES  National Integrated Water Quality Program Grant

http://www.grants.gov/search/search.do?mode=VIEW&oppId=12127  

3. Integrated Research, Education, and Extension Projects
Program Area 110.D


All proposed projects in Program Area 110.D MUST present a FULLY
integrated research, education, and extension approach to solve water
resource problems at the whole watershed scale that include linked
research objectives, education objectives, and extension/outreach
objectives. 
 

Projects submitted to Section 110.D will be evaluated, in part, based
upon the degree to which they address the following items. Projects
responding to this section of the RFA MUST:
 

*	Identify the cause of water resource degradation;
*	Solve water resource problems at the whole watershed scale.
Applications that propose work at a spatial scale other than the whole
watershed must demonstrate that the geospatial scale or entity (state,
county, or community) is the most appropriate scale of investigation and
will ultimately result in watershed level improvements in water
resources. Projects at the plot- or field-scale will not be accepted;
*	Include hypothesis-driven research that fills the knowledge gaps
that are critical to the development of practices and programs that will
improve the quality of the Nation's water resources;
*	Create educational deliverables (e.g., interdisciplinary
curriculums, experiential learning for undergraduates and graduate
students) that will train the next generation of scientists and
educators who will work to improve the Nation's water resources;
*	Deliver an effective extension/outreach program that will lead
to measurable behavior change in an identified audience or stakeholder
group; 
*	Include a management plan (developed with input from stakeholder
advisory groups, watershed councils, or other community led action
teams) that leads to measurable improvements in the watershed condition;
and
*	Develop and implement an evaluation plan that demonstrates the
impact of the project through measured improvements in water quality
and/or measurable behavior change.

 
Projects MUST address one of the three following priority question areas
presented below:
 

*	What leads to measurable behavior change of farmers, ranchers
and landowners or land managers regarding the practices they implement
to protect water quality or manage water use? What factors (physical,
social, economic, or institutional) foster or impede adoption and/or
maintenance of practices or technologies? What are the most effective
tools (for the identified audience) to promote real change?


*	What are the hydrologic, geomorphic, and ecological conditions
needed to restore the structure and function of aquatic or estuarine
ecosystems impacted by agricultural water use (surface water or
groundwater) or agricultural non-point source pollution? How do social,
cultural, economic, and/or institutional factors hinder or promote
implementation of existing hydrologic, geomorphic, and ecological
knowledge?


*	A wide array of factors (physical, biological, cultural, and
economic) lead to water quality impairments in watersheds. These factors
are not evenly distributed across a watershed - indicating that some
areas within a watershed pose a greater risk to water quality
impairment. How do these multiple factors interact at the watershed
scale to impact water quality? What new outreach and education tools are
needed to improve the efficacy of conservation practice implementation
and maintenance? Successful projects should develop tools that can be
used by stakeholders within a watershed and across a broader regional
landscape to identify those areas that pose the greatest risk to degrade
water quality. Projects should describe how research and extension
activities can lead to improved effectiveness of conservation practices
and programs at the watershed scale.


Preference will be given to projects that: 
 
*	Demonstrate a substantial potential to enhance 

                  (i) The long term knowledge base;

                  (ii) Existing opportunities for leveraging; and 

                  (iii) Active public and private sector participation.

*	Take advantage of the participatory research, education, and
extension opportunities engendered by watershed restoration and
continued watershed management; and/or 
*	Focus on watersheds where the project will better inform policy
makers in developing the most equitable multi-state and/or regional
strategies for water quality improvement.  


All PDs funded in this section of the program are expected to
participate in the annual CSREES National Water Conference.  Reasonable
travel expenses to the CSREES National Water Conference may be claimed
as part of the project budget. 


The intent of the NIWQP is to have Integrated Research, Education, and
Extension projects funded by the program participate in, coordinate
with, and share suitable information with the appropriate Regional Water
Quality program. These interactions are intended to expand the
geographic scope and impact of Integrated Research, Education, and
Extension projects to a broader regional audience. Award recipients also
are expected to provide copies of annual reports and updates to the
appropriate Regional Water Quality Coordinator. Contact information for
the Regional Water Quality Coordinator will be provided to award
recipients at the time of the award.
