More than $1 million dollars in grants have been awarded to soil and water conservation districts around the state. It's part of the Clean Water Indiana program and some of that money is coming to our area. Officials say they are working to develop and impliment programs to improve water quality by reducing pollution through education, training and cost-sharing. Close to home, combined efforts in DeKalb and Steuben Counties as well as Jay and Blackford counties will get $75,000. Seperate projects in Miami, Wabash and Kosciusko Counties, will get a combined $150,000.
