Mona Scruggs with Alabama Water Watch (AWW) has sent out information about several activities that are planned for the days of July 22-24.
On Thursday July 22, at 7 pm, there will have a brief meeting at the Traders and Farmers Bank in Addison to present the final Rock Creek Watershed Management Plan to interested stakeholders (copies will be available). This will also be a time for you to ask questions about the plan and the implementation process.
On Friday July 23, from 12:30 pm until 6:30 pm, (AWW) will be holding a free Chemistry Water Monitoring Workshop with the Smith Lake Environmental Preservation Committee (SLEPC) at the home of Deb Berry.
On Saturday July 24, from 12:30 pm until 6:30 pm, AWW will be holding another free Chemistry Water Monitoring Workshop at Smith Lake Civic Association building located at 2155 Smith Lake Dam Road in Jasper. Directions will be posted at the AWW Workshop Registration page.
If you have been certified by AWW, but need recertification, you will have an opportunity to be recertified at both workshops from 3:30 pm until 6:30 pm.
Please go to https://fp.auburn.edu/icaae/WorkShopRegC.aspx to register for your workshop.
Also, AWW will be attending the SLEPC meeting which begins at 9 am on Saturday July 24th, at the Dodge House Restaurant in Dodge City. They will briefly discuss the Winter Bacteria Blitz results and other AWW news.
The Summer Bacteria Blitz will be ongoing throughout the three days. You can pick up testing materials at the RCWMP meeting on Thursday night or at the workshop on Friday. If you are not going to incubate your own samples, AWW can get your samples at either the Friday or Saturday workshops (depending on the day you test), or at the SLEPC meeting at the Dodge House Restaurant. AWW can coordinate other meeting times if these do not work for you. If you need more information, call Mona at (334) 844-4785.
