Indian Creek Watershed Cost-Share Funds Available

The Cost-Share Program for the Indian Creek Watershed Project has been available starting in July of 2013. The funds were obtained through a 319 Non-Point Source Pollution Grant from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM). This approval released funding to improve and/or correct natural resource problems in the watershed. The Indian Creek Watershed contains over 44,000 acres in Switzerland County.

ICW flows some 15 miles from its' beginnings near Avonburg to the Ohio River, just West of Vevay. It consists of nearly 44,000 acres and is the largest of seven watersheds within Switzerland County. Cost-Share programs are being developed to help stakeholders with the cost of putting conservation on the land with the goals of improving water and soil quality!
