TEMPLE - Area landowners and citizens interested in the implementation of the Geronimo and Alligator Creeks Watershed Protection Plan (WPP) are invited to attend a free "Rainwater Harvesting for Homeowners" workshop on Tuesday, November 15, 2016.
The meeting, hosted by the Geronimo and Alligator Creeks Watershed Partnership, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, and the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority, will be held at the Irma Lewis Seguin Outdoor Learning Center located at 1865 Highway 90 East in Seguin from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
In addition to the rainwater harvesting workshop, participants will be provided with an update on the status of implementation of the Geronimo and Alligator Creeks WPP.
The Geronimo and Alligator Creeks Watershed Partnership was formed in 2010 due to elevated levels of bacteria and nitrate-nitrogen. The purpose of the WPP is to restore and protect water quality in the Geronimo and Alligator Creeks watershed. The Partnership completed the WPP in 2012 and is now working on implementing management measures identified in the plan.
Attendees are asked to RSVP to Ward Ling at wling [at] tamu [dot] edu or 979-845-6980.
