Lake and river water quality pollution problems and their solutions begin on the land, and this is where we focus our efforts.
The Watershed Foundation (TWF) was founded in 1997 with the name: Tippecanoe Environmental Lake and Watershed Foundation (TELWF). The founding residents and leaders from Lake Tippecanoe realized that to protect and enhance their community, a larger vision – a focus on the entire watershed – was needed.
Runoff carries pollutants into the nearest waterway – and these pollutants continue to flow into our lakes- bombarding them with sediment, excess nutrients and bacteria. Water doesn’t follow political or governmental boundaries, which is why we proactively take a large-scale approach to address threats to our lakes.
