The Upper Wabash River Basin Commission (UWRBC) received an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Section 205(j) grant from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) beginning January 2013. This grant was used to develop a Watershed Management Plan (WMP) for Phase II of the Wabash River watershed area.
This WMP covers three 10-digit Hydrologic Unit Codes (HUCs) in the Upper Wabash River watershed: HUCs: 0512010107 (Rock Creek subwatershed), 0512010108 (Wabash River – Griffin Ditch subwatershed), and 0512010109 (Eight Mile subwatershed) in Wells, Huntington and Allen Counties, IN.

PLANNING UPDATE MEETING
The public Watershed Management Plan update meeting was held March 19, 2014. The public was updated on the progress of the plan, and asked to review the list of water quality concerns in the watershed and help with identifying the problems, causes and sources of pollution.
The kick-off meeting to introduce the project to the public was held February 27, 2013. Meeting presentations are available at the links below.
