Illinois project to show Midwest farmers how to grow wetlands for cleaner water

PRINCETON — In an agricultural watershed in north-central Illinois, Alliance Pipeline is supporting the work of nonprofit organization the Wetlands Initiative (TWI) to recruit farmers to try out a new conservation practice: Constructed wetlands to reduce excess nutrients from tile drainage. A two-year, $60,000 grant is benefiting the organization’s project to show how returning wetlands to the farming landscape can produce cleaner water locally and far downstream, while providing landowners with a new source of income.
