The state nutrient reduction strategy represents an inclusive effort under the leadership of the Indiana State Department of Agriculture (ISDA) and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) to capture present and future endeavors in Indiana which positively impact the state’s waters. The nutrient reduction strategy was authored with input from the Indiana Conservation Partnership as well as members of the agricultural community, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and Indiana Farm Bureau. This is a living document and will undergo revisions over time.
The document serves several functions. These are:
The Indiana Conservation Partnership (ICP) aims to provide technical, financial and educational assistance to Hoosiers working to positively impact our soil and water resources. The ICP provides expertise to landowners and leverages both state and federal funds to put conservation on the ground in the form of Best Management Practices and technologies. Below are links to the ICP’s achievements across the state for 2013, including the conservation workload of the partnership as a whole, as well as the resulting annual nutrient and sediment load reductions, which illustrate the amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus and topsoil that are kept out of Indiana’s waterways.
