September 21, 2016 Village Creek-Lake Arlington Watershed Protection Partnership Meeting Set For September 22
The fourth public meeting for the Village Creek-Lake Arlington Watershed Protection Partnership is set for 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 22. It will be held at the Texas Health Huguley Hospital fitness center amphitheater located at 11801 South Freeway in Burleson, Texas.
Everyone will be provided with preliminary water quality results during our first monitoring update, and we will also talk about some best management practices for urban landowners, including low impact development, rainwater harvesting, and storm water management. There will be lots of helpful tips for homeowners, cities, and businesses looking to make landscaping changes to their property.
Doors will open at 6 pm, so please join us for light refreshments before the meeting. Associate Professor and Extension Specialist Fouad Jaber will speak on storm water infrastructure and Extension Program Specialist Dotty Woodson will have information on irrigation. Angela Kilpatrick, senior environmental scientist with Trinity River Authority will present the water quality monitoring update. Plus there will be open discussion with time for questions for the presenters.
The Trinity River Authority, City of Arlington and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality have partnered with local residents, businesses and other organizations to develop a non-regulatory watershed protection plan for this watershed.
If you live, work, or play in the watershed, you are invited to be a part of the development process by learning about available management options and providing input about which ones should be implemented to protect recreation and drinking water uses in both Village Creek and Lake Arlington.
