New Lake Restoration  Projects for 2022

ECI is examining and conducting Water Quality Evaluations at  Bruce and  Silver Lake. We are collecting daily water samples as well as monthly  "in lake" samples looking at nutrients such as phosphorus, nitrogen and sediment loads.


ECI for 2022 is continuing to work at Lake Wawasee after concluding a three year intense study. We also continue to evaluate and dive deeper into Clear Lake as well as Sylvan Lake.


ECI has collaborated with the INDIANA WATERWAYS PROJECT in a book entitled INDIANA WATERWAYS: The Art of Conservation, that is bringing light to one of our most beloved resources. Five artists contributed 100 paintings along with three writers contributing conservation essays. Dr. Jerry Sweeten tells the story of his own professional journey leading to the restoration of the Eel River basin.
