Posted

BLEIBLERVILLE – The public is invited to attend the Mill Creek Watershed Partnership meeting to discuss the restoration and protection of the Mill Creek Watershed on Tuesday, June 26 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Bleiblerville Volunteer Fire Department located at 3912 FM 2502 Rd.

This meeting is being hosted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board (TSSWCB) and will focus on the water quality monitoring efforts in Mill Creek as well as upcoming events in the watershed. Additionally, the Austin County Soil and Water Conservation District technician will provide an update on TSSWCB’s Water Quality Management Plan Program.

The Mill Creek Watershed Partnership supports approved implementation of the Watershed Protection Plan. The Partnership is a voluntary, proactive, organization of stakeholders working to improve surface water quality in and around Mill Creek. Anyone living in, working in, recreating in, or otherwise affected by activities to restore and protect the Mill Creek Watershed should consider themselves a stakeholder, and is encouraged to attend this meeting to become more informed on the project and be involved in the decision-making process. Public input is critical to improving and protecting the quality of Texas’ waters and is a key component of any effective Watershed Protection Plan.
