Patoka River (Lower) WMP 6-107
The Gibson County, Indiana Commissioners received a 205j grant from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management to develop a Preliminary Engineering Report for wastewater for the entire County, and a Watershed Management Plan (WMP) for the Lower Patoka River watershed. A citizens group has formed a coalition to concentrate on the Patoka Lake watershed. The Four River Resource Conservation and Development Area (RC&D) – U.S. Department of Agriculture is working with the Dubois County Soil and Water Conservation District to address the Patoka from Patoka Lake to the city of Jasper. The Four Rivers RC&D is also exploring the possibility of attacking the Patoka from Jasper to this project area.
This portion of the project will develop a WMP. The Project area consists of the Patoka River and the South Fork Patoka River - Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC) 05120209080 at 86,689 acres and 05120209070 at 48,823 acres. There are 13 sub-watersheds in the project area.
