Lake Decatur
Water Quality Initiative

Hemp Pilot Project

Our mission is to utilize hemp to significantly reduce sediment by up to 50% and nitrates by 20% each year, contributing to the health of the local water supply reservoir in Decatur, IL and to the the Mississippi River Basin Critical Conservation Area.

The IHGA is proud to be one of over 50 partners on this first of its kind project.
