The Indian Creek Watershed (ICW) project was created by concerned citizens who desired "To lead efforts to better the natural resources of the ICW for present and future generations". That has, in fact, been adopted as the groups' 'Mission Statement'. The 'Vision' of the group states: "A watershed with a healthy natural resource base that will improve the quality of life within our community".
ICW flows some 15 miles from its' beginnings near Avonburg to the Ohio River, just West of Vevay. It consists of nearly 44,000 acres and is the largest of seven watersheds within Switzerland County. Cost-Share programs are being developed to help stakeholders with the cost of putting conservation on the land with the goals of improving water and soil quality!
