View Indiana’s Nutrient Reduction Strategy

Wabash River

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: 

  • To recognize water quality trends and concerns within the state of Indiana.
  • To prioritize watersheds and coordinate implementation of current local, state and federal cost-share programs and grants which positively impact water quality in the state.
  • To provide a summary of current water monitoring and permitting efforts in Indiana as well as significant changes and/or timelines therein regarding goals, targets or protocols for improved or increased monitoring and permitting.
  • To illustrate the significance and achievements of the Indiana Conservation Partnership and its member entities as an invaluable resource in addressing Hoosiers’ water quality challenges and concerns.
  • To serve as a strategic document for seeking continued funding sources for current and future efforts concerning water quality in Indiana.
  • To illustrate the means by which the state of Indiana will provide reports and accountability in these functions to federal agencies, to conservation partners within the state and to the public.
