WKCTC Science Seminar Explains Clarks River Watershed Project

West Kentucky Community amp; Technical College will host a science seminar next week that will focus on a special watershed project developed by Jackson Purchase Research Conservation and Development, Inc.

Guest speaker Maggie Morgan, watershed coordinator of Four Rivers Basin Team will present Watershed Planning in the Clarks River Waterbed on Thursday, December 3 at 2:00 p.m. in Crounse Hall 101. The public is invited to this free seminar.

This project has encompassed two phases, the watershed planning phase, which has just been completed, and the implementation phase, which will begin shortly. Through the first phase, a watershed based plan for the Clarks River watershed was developed. This plan outlines pollutants of concern, potential sources, and best management practices that could be used to address these pollutants. The second phase will implement the best management practices identified in the watershed plan in an effort to reduce pollutant loads in the Clarks River watershed in Calloway County.

The Jackson Purchase RCamp;D Foundation, Inc. has performed watershed planning in the Clarks River watershed through an EPA 319(h) grant from the Kentucky Division of Water.
