    The primary goal of the Small Watershed Program is to "give assistance to cities with runoff and flooding problems".

    Answer: Option D

    Explanation:

    The small and large watershed programs are covered under the "Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Program (WPFP) ". The watersheds which are smaller than 1000 kilometer square or lesser than 250,000 acres are only eligible for "the small watershed program" while these small watersheds are covered within large watersheds.

    An area of land, comprising a common set of rivers and streams which are directed to flow into a single larger water body like sea, river, lake or ocean are known as "watershed". The WPFP program supports federal, state, local and tribal government units in order to work together to prevent erosion, conservation development, prevent floodwater and sediment damage, use and disposal of water etc.
