Active community involvement is crucial to the success of watershed planning and implementation. The UWRBC welcomes volunteers from the community to help with water quality monitoring, cost-share participation and watershed stewardship.
Whether you own farm land, raise livestock, own a home or live in multi-unit housing, you can take part in the watershed efforts to cleanup the Wabash River and tributaries. Volunteers can participate by avoiding activites that contribute to non-point source pollution. Efforts can be as simple as disposing of pet waste, maintaining septic systems, properly disposing of home chemicals, avoiding automobile oil spills or installing a rain garden.
