Indiana is home to many beautiful lakes and rivers, and it is up to all of us to keep them clean for future generations to enjoy. In an effort to improve water quality across the state, the Indiana State Department of Agriculturerecently awarded more than $1 million to 32 communities across the state through the Clean Water Indiana grant program.
Posey and Vanderburgh counties received a total of $65,000 to implement programs to help local farmers, business owners and community members adopt conservation as part of their approach to work and life.
The grants can be used to fund various projects based on the need of the community, including resources for technical assistance, education and local training.
