Do What You Can Do!

The Allen County Partnership for Water Quality (ACPWQ) is a collaborative education and outreach effort concerning water quality.  The ACPWQ also helps to encourage public participation in improving the quality of the county's waters.  Through presentations, booths, brochures, workshops and other media, the ACPWQ-through the efforts of the Water Resource Educator, exists to help inform all residents, businesses and other stakeholders about water resources and pollution.

Regarding the US EPA National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits and the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) communities, the ACPWQ addresses the education, outreach, public participation, and part of the good housekeeping measures (MCMs).

This award-winning, locally funded partnership was the first of its kind within the state of Indiana.
