TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - It's an important area for the Wabash Valley, but you may not know its true purpose.
It's called the "Otter Creek Project."
On Wednesday at a special meeting, experts discussed the Otter Creek Watershed.
If you're wondering, that's the area that drains water into Otter Creek...and eventually into the Wabash River.
It impacts bodies of water in Vigo, Clay, and Parke Counties.
People from the community were able to express their concerns about the region.
The project is using a grant to find the best ways to improve the watershed.
Leaders say they hope to make changes for the better with these meetings.
