Your Home - Your Watershed: Nippersink Creek Social Assessment Survey
We need your help and invite you to take 10 minutes of your time to complete a brief resident survey.
A critical part of continuing to protect and enhance the quality of Nippersink Creek is determining how watershed landowners view the importance of protecting the quality of our surface and groundwater resources; how they perceive potential threats to water quality; and understanding the degree to which they understand how human activities can potentially impact water quality.
The Nippersink Watershed Association, in coordination with Illinois State University
and local watershed partners, appreciates your time and support!

The Nippersink Watershed Association would like to thank the organizers of the recent
Nippersink Music and Arts Festival for their generous donation of $ 514 to the NWA, resulting from a portion
of the ticket sales, as well as for the clean-up work that was done along the creek as part of the Festival.
New Project:
Nippersink Lawn
The Nippersink Watershed Association and Illinois State University (with funding from the Illinois EPA),  have partnered to develop the  “Lawns for the Nippersink” campaign geared at educating local watershed residents and retailers about the value of using phosphorus-free fertilizers for  lawn care.
