Paddys Run Conservation Project:
Up to $13 million will be used to purchase conservation easements in and around the Paddys Run Watershed and within portions of the Great Miami Aquifer. Participating landowners can receive grant funding to permanently protect their land with conservation easements. As an easement donor, landowners still retain private ownership and use of the land, and the conservation easement is permanently protected by the Three Valley Conservation Trust. If you are interested in more information, call the Township Administrator at 513-738-8279.
