A public meeting will be held on December 11 concerning the Strawberry River Watershed, according to the Izard County Extension Office.
The forum is for community members to discuss water pollution issues specific to the Strawberry River Watershed. The watershed includes communities in Fulton, Izard, Lawrence and Sharp Counties.
Forum participants will be asked to discuss local water quality concerns, to identify priorities for reducing pollution from runoff and about who should be involved in those efforts. The forum is an extension of an annual stakeholder meeting that the UA Division of Agriculture’s Public Policy Center holds each year in partnership with the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission, which is responsible for developing and implementing programs to address nonpoint source water pollution in the state. December’s forum is a local opportunity for people to get engaged in addressing water issues.
The meeting will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Ozarka College, Student Center Room AFSC104, 64 College Dr., in Ash Flat.
For more information about the community forum or to RSVP, Call Amanda Philyaw Perez at 501-671-2228 or you can e-mail your RSVP to publicpolicycenter@uaex.edu.
