FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – A few minutes on public radio each weekday this month are being
devoted to glimpses at the ways that northwest Arkansas uses its water resources.
KUAF 91.3 FM is partnering with the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture
Cooperative Extension Service to present a segment on the air each weekday highlighting
different water-related topics and their impact on the region.
The segments for “Extension’s Water Connections,” which are being produced in recognition
of Water Quality Month during August, each run about three to five minutes. They are
aired weekdays at 6:31 and 8:31 a.m., during the noon edition of “Ozarks at Large,”
and at 3:18 and 5:18 p.m.
“The goal of the water connection series is to increase public awareness of our regional
water resources and encourage voluntary water quality stewardship to protect them,”
said Katie Teague, a Washington County extension agent who, along with extension colleagues
Jane Maginot and Colin Massey, worked with KUAF operations manager Pete Hartman to
produce the series.
The audio segments feature interviews with water quality professionals who discuss
topics such as regional water use, economic development, recreational opportunities,
wildlife habitat, environmental stewardship and historical significance. Each segment
also includes a “what you can do” advisory on ways to prevent pollution: picking up
pet waste, using rain barrels and organizing litter clean-up events, among others.
Interviews on the segments during the second half of August will include Brad Wimberly,
owner of the Turner Bend Store in Franklin County, on tourism at the Mulberry River;
Terry Carpenter, president of USI Consulting Engineers, on bringing daylight to sections
of downtown Springdale’s Spring Creek, and Keith Shreve, Fayetteville city assistant
transportation manager, who will lead a tour of the storm drain infrastructure under
the Walton Arts Center parking lot to follow stormwater’s path from a drain inlet.
Segments that have already been aired are posted at http://kuaf.com/programs/extensions-water-connections.
