Urban Waters Voices: Sara Peel


This video features Sara Peel, Director of Watershed Projects for the Wabash River Enhancement Corporation, describing some of the challenges faced by communities in the Greater Lafayette Region of Indiana (e.g. sewer overflows, water quality issues, and access to the river) and how the organization is using engaging government and community partners to address these challenges.

This nonprofit agency (www.wabashriver.net), formed by 3 local governments (Lafayette, W. Lafayette, Tippecanoe Co.) along with Purdue University, sees its goal as working to enhance the quality of life in the Wabash River Corridor by providing sustainable opportunities to improve health, recreation, education, economic development, and environmental management.
