The State Soil Conservation Board has awarded more than $1 million to the Clean Water Indiana Program. The funding will support 14 proposals representing 39 Soil and Water Conservation Districts and 2 conservation groups.
The award is a conservation match funding program aimed at reducing pollutants in Indiana’s waterways through Indiana Soil and Water Conservation Districts and other conservation groups.
The Fulton County Soil and Water Conservation District received just over $106, 000.
Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch, Secretary of Agriculture and Rural Development said the funds will benefit local farmers in a multitude of ways by providing technical assistance to support farmers in improving water quality and, in some cases, create jobs for rural Hoosiers.
