The abundance and quality of water resources we enjoy here in Allen County is so great that we take it for granted. We take for granted that we can turn on the tap at any time and immediately have as much clean water as we desire. Because of that we don’t automatically connect that water with its source – the reservoir, the river, or groundwater. And even more importantly, we don’t think about our daily activities and how we impact or threaten the quality of those water resources.
Allen Soil and Water Conservation District is engaged in a number of programs that are aimed at helping Allen County connect with those precious water resources. Because we want your individual actions to count toward protecting this water that we all drink!
Programs conducted by the Allen Soil and Water Conservation District directed toward healthy water resources include:
Education Programs for Adults and Children
Ottawa River Coalition
Pond Design Services
Ottawa River Stream Gage
Ohio Water and Groundwater Resources
City of Lima Stormwater Utility Website
