U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Field Day
The staff at the Sangamon County Soil and Water Conservation District, along with U.S. EPA, Illinois EPA and CWLP braved the 100 degree heat to conduct site visits around Sangamon County on projects completed under the last 319 grant.
Despite the heat we had a great turn out with U.S. EPA, Illinois EPA, CWLP and Sangamon County SWCD.
Illinois EPA Grant - Lake Springfield Watershed Project
As part of the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) 319 Grant, the Sangamon County Soil and Water Conservation District has been working hard to improve the Lake Springfield shoreline. In the current project, we were able to install rip-rap on 1500' of shoreline. We can't thank the contractors and cooperating partners enough for all of their hard work in trying to conserve our resources!
