Rock Creek Watershed meeting in Addison, AL on Thurs., Feb 4th at 7:00 p.m. at the Traders and Farmers Bank

A meeting for stakeholders in the Rock Creek watershed is planned for Thursday, February 4th at the Traders and Farmers Bank meeting room in Addison. The meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. for those interested in serving on either the technical committee or the evaluation/outreach committee, with the regular meeting beginning at 7:00 p.m. The purpose of this meeting is to complete a Watershed Management Plan by mid-March. Having participation from a broad range of citizens is important to the success of this plan.

Alabama Water Watch is also planning on having bacteriological water testing training sessions on Friday and Saturday. After the training on Saturday morning, they will conduct a "Bacteria Blitz" where several volunteers will conduct bacteriological water testing at several sites in the Smith Lake Watershed. Volunteers will turn in their samples to Alabama Water Watch later on Saturday so that the samples can be incubated properly. Watch here for further details on the bacteriological water testing training.
