Where does all the water go after it rains? How does what people do on their land at home, on the farm and in the cities affect water and soil quality? Pathway to Water Quality can show you. Pathway to Water Quality (see map), managed by the ICP, is a model watershed that shows you how land “sheds” excess water and what that means to you. The PWQ exhibit contains practical displays and information for anyone who uses the land. The Pathway to Water Quality Exhibit has been a popular fixture at the Indiana State Fairgrounds since 1993. It is an excellent watershed demonstration site, showing how proper management practices at home, on the farm and in business can protect our soil and water resources. In 2013 we celebrated the 20th anniversary of Pathway’s existence at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Read more about PWQ in the spring 2013 issue of Indiana Farm Bureau’s magazine, My Indiana Home.
