The Michigan Agricultural Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP) provides educational, technical, and financial assistance to agricultural producers and residents to identify and reduce groundwater contamination risks. The program encourages individuals to take voluntary, proactive steps to protect Michigan's water quality and therefore the drinking water. Purchases of nitrogen fertilizers and pesticides support the program.
Agricultural producers who participate in the program can become environmentally assured through MAEAP. Environmenal assurance indicates the farm is in conformance with state and federal environmental laws and guidelines, and is protecting Michigan's important natural resources for the use of future generations.
The Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP) is an innovative, proactive program that helps farms of all sizes and all commodities voluntarily prevent or minimize agricultural
pollution risks. MAEAP teaches farmers how to identify and prevent environmental risks and comply with state and federal environmental regulations. Farmers who successfully complete the three phases
of a MAEAP system are rewarded by becoming verified in that system.
MAEAP was developed by a coalition of agriculture producers, commodity groups, state and federal agencies, and conservation and environmental groups. While MDA is the verifying agency, MAEAP is not a government or regulatory program but rather a partnership effort.
