The Texas Water Resources Institute, or TWRI, is hosting a meeting July 30 in Rogers for anyone interested in joining a partnership to improve and protect water quality in the Big Elm Creek watershed. The meeting, free and open to the public, will be at 1 p.m. at the First Baptist Church, 5 W. Prairie Ave.
This meeting will be the sixth in a series with local stakeholders to address water quality impairments in Big Elm Creek, a major tributary of Little River in Central Texas. Public response and involvement has been positive, and the feedback has been crucial to designing an effective watershed plan. Continuing public feedback and engagement is important for its success.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality is supporting stakeholder engagement activities for the Big Elm Creek watershed with funding provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through a Clean Water Act grant.
