The July Allen County SWCD Board Meeting has been changed to:
July 29, 2014 @ 8am, here at the Allen County SWCD Office

(3718 New Vision Drive - Fort Wayne, IN 46845)

If you farm in the St. Marys watershed, you should be aware that the Adams and Allen County SWCD have cost-share programs available!

A large portion of those grant funds are devoted to a cost-share program that provides assistance to producers in the St. Marys Watershed to implement Best Management Practices (BMP’s) that focus reducing non-point pollution.  Such practices include but are not limited to: cover crops, grassed waterways, filter strips, fencing, gypsum and equipment modifications. 

Cost-share funds will be available with a 75% cost-share to 25% match ratio when BMPs are implemented on land adjacent to or intersected by an open ditch or stream.  Cost-share funds will be available with a 65% cost-share to 35% match ratio when BMPs are implemented on all other land in the St. Marys River Watershed

These programs have been funded by the Clean Water Indiana Grant, through a Great Lakes Commission (GLC) Grant.

This program ends September 2014, so if you are interested please contact us soon!

What is a Soil & Water Conservation District?

Each county in Indiana has a soil and water conservation district (SWCD). SWCDs are subdivisions of state government lead by a 5 member board of supervisors. SWCDs address issues involving natural resource issues and needs in their counties. Some of these issues are agricultural conservation, urban conservation, forestry, wildlife, water management and natural resource education.
