WYNNE, Ark. — People who live, work, recreate or own property in the L’Anguille River Watershed are invited to participate in an August 20, 2015 forum on water quality.
The forum, hosted by the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture, is an opportunity for the public to identify water quality
issues or concerns, and their community’s priorities for addressing water pollution.
The L’Anguille River Watershed crosses multiple county lines and includes communities in Craighead,
Cross, Lee, Poinsett, St. Francis and Woodruff counties. The forum, which starts at 5 p.m. and is expected to end at 8 p.m., will
be at Wynne Fire Station at 1111 North Falls Boulevard in Wynne.
The forum is an extension of an annual stakeholder meeting that Division of Agriculture’s
Public Policy Center holds each year in Little Rock in partnership with the Arkansas
Natural Resources Commission, the state agency responsible for developing and implementing
programs to address nonpoint source water pollution. Extension is hosting forums across
the state as an additional opportunity for people to get involved in local water issues.
“It’s important for people who live or work in the L’Anguille River Watershed to get engaged and participate in conversations about local water quality
priorities,” said Kristin Higgins, a program associate with the Public Policy Center.
“Improving and maintaining water quality requires the commitment of people from different
organizations and perspectives working together.”
The L’Anguille River has not supported aquatic life uses because of very high levels of turbidity.
Streams in the larger watershed, which is mostly used for agricultural purposes, also
have high turbidity and lots of sediment brought into them from runoff water. The
long-term goal of ANRC’s priority watershed program is to reduce pollutants to levels
that will restore all of a waterway’s designated uses.
Comments or strategies identified during the three-hour forum could help communities
begin to address local water quality issues. The forum is open to the public. RSVP
by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 501-671-2228.
The Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service is an equal opportunity/equal access/affirmative
action institution. If you require a reasonable accommodation to participate or need
materials in another format, please contact your County Extension office (or other appropriate
office) as soon as possible. Dial 711 for Arkansas Relay.
The Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service offers its programs to all eligible persons
regardless of race, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin,
religion, age, disability, marital or veteran status, genetic information, or any
other legally protected status, and is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
