CORSICANA (AP) - The Trinity River Basin is to be included in a national water quality initiative launched to improve impaired watersheds.

A statement from the U.S. Department of Agriculture says that as home to nearly 8 million residents, the Trinity River Basin is the state’s most polluted river basin.

The USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service plans to provide funding to farmers, ranchers and timberland owners in the Chambers Creek Watershed of the Trinity River Basin.

State Conservationist Salvador Salinas of the agency is scheduled to visit a ranch in that watershed near Corsicana on Tuesday to detail how the program is to work. Representatives of state and local soil and water conservation agencies also are scheduled to attend.
