The Owen County SWCD applied for and was awarded a Lake And River Enhancement (LARE) grant for 2013. This grant is to reduce sediment and bacterial counts in the Limestone Creek Watershed. We are currently working with The Nature Conservancy, the Owen County Highway Department, and landowners to design and install some two-stage ditches in the northeastern part of the county.
The two-stage ditches are planned to go in this fall after the crops in the area are harvested. We will post more when plans are finalized and ground is broken!
