The Natural Resources Conservation Service is offering money to help ag producers comply with an Environmental Protection Agency rule regarding oil spills.

The rule requires producers who store more than 10,000 gallons of oil on their property to have a plan drawn up by an engineer for how to prevent and contain oil spills.

Cheryl Grapes with the NRCS says getting those plans drawn up can cost thousands of dollars, which can be a burden for producers.
