Cedar Creek Watershed Management Plan Assessment & Education Program

City Utilities received a passthrough grant for the St. Joseph River Watershed Initiative (Initiative) from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management’s Clean Water Act Section 205(j) grant program in the amount of $125,625. These funds will be used to implement the Lower Cedar Creek Watershed Management Plan Assessment and Education Program. With land use changes, population growth, and sediment loading from the Cedar Creek, a Watershed Management Plan will be a guiding document to help improve water quality within the Cedar Creek and its tributaries.
