Clean Water Indiana funds distributed to Putnam and other counties

 The Indiana State Department of Agriculture (ISDA) and the State Soil Conservation Board (SSCB) recently distributed $901,500 to Putnam and other Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs) through the Clean Water Indiana (CWI) program. These funds will help strengthen Indiana’s conservation efforts and address natural resource concerns at the local level.

Administered by the SSCB, CWI is a water quality-related erosion and sediment reduction program funded from a portion of state cigarette tax revenue. Through the program, ISDA and the SSCB provide an annual match of up to $10,000 to SWCDs who receive funding from a local governmental entity.
