Twenty-one Indiana counties will receive funds to use to improve local water  bodies, thanks to nearly 1.5 million dollars in grants awarded by Department  of Natural Resources. The grants will fund projects on four lakes and 22  rivers and streams in 21 counties. In Kosciusko County, $31,600 will go  toward a feasibility study at Chapman Lakes. Most of the projects aim to  improve water quality by addressing sediment and nutrient inputs into lakes  and streams. Improved water quality helps to ensure continued viability for fish and wildlife as well as improve recreational opportunities in Indiana.
