Welcome to the SLCWP
The South Laughery Creek Watershed Project was created to educate residents of the watershed about conservation via community involvement.
The SLCWP also offers cost-share programs to landowners in the watershed to assist them in implementing best management practices (such as planting cover crops, installing alternative watering systems and fencing, adding riparian buffers and installing grass waterways, among others).
The watershed encompasses 112,000 acres in Dearborn, Ohio, Ripley and Switzerland Counties and is fed by over 25 tributaries.
South Laughery Creek itself is 22 miles long and stretches from Versailles Lake in Ripley County to the Ohio River west of Aurora in Dearborn County.
