Wayne County Soil and Water Conservation District receives a Whitewater Valley REMC Round Up Grant for Conservation Days 2022.  Read the attached press release for more details.

Thank you Whitewater Valley REMC for helping to fund this event for our 3rd / 4th grade students!



The Wayne County Soil & Water Conservation District is currently looking for volunteers to form a Fact-Finding committee to gather information with the intent to apply for a future Clean Water Act Section 319(h) grant, which provides funding for various types of projects that work to reduce nonpoint source water pollution.
Previous watershed based 319 grants implemented by the SWCD include the Whitewater River Initiative and the Friends of the Middle Fork, which were extremely beneficial in providing cost share assistance to eligible Wayne County landowners for the installation of best management practices to their land.
If you are interested, please email or call the SWCD office at 765-966-0191 x3. We look forward to hearing from you!
