Many area residents will now qualify for participation in a cost share program through the Clinton County Soil and Water Conservation District. This is if you are interested in completing conservation projects that improve water quality in the Brown’s Wonder-Sugar Creek Watershed. The District has recently received approval to expand the areas eligible that includes many sub-watersheds of Sugar Creek in an area roughly around Frankfort, Lebanon, Sheridan, and Scircleville. There are a variety of projects that are eligible for funding through this program.
Agricultural Best Management Practices like cover crops, nutrient management, grassed waterways, livestock fencing, and many more. Urban practices like rain gardens and pervious pavement are eligible as well. The CCSWCD administers this program through the financial assistance of an IDEM Clean Water Act Section 319 Grant.
