    TPublic Information Meeting Scheduled for June 8 in Marshall to Discuss

    a Voluntary Watershed-Based Management Plan for the Buffalo River Watershed

    The Arkansas Natural Resources Commission (ANRC), in cooperation with the Beautiful Buffalo River Action Committee (BBRAC), has scheduled its third public information meeting regarding the development of the voluntary watershed-based management plan for the Buffalo River Watershed. The meeting will be June 8, from 1 p.m. to 3:30 in Marshall at the Searcy County Civic Center. It is located on Zack Road, a little more than a mile off U.S. Hwy 65. Attendees should turn north on Zack Road off Hwy 65, next to Harps Supermarket, and then drive a half mile and follow Zack Road as it turns left (west). Drive three-fourths of a mile, and the Civic Center is on the left. The meeting is free and everyone is welcomed to attend.


    This is the third of four meetings to gather public input and to explain the process that will be followed in the development of the non-regulatory watershed-based management plan for the Buffalo River and its tributaries. Summaries of the Dec. 8, 2016, meeting in Marshall and this year’s March 30 Jasper meeting are available at the www.Arkansaswater.org site by accessing the link to the summaries.


    The purposes of the upcoming Marshall meeting include:

    1. Summarize the results of the Jasper meeting;

    2. Provide results from the additional analyses suggested by stakeholders at the Jasper

    meeting;

    3. Present suggested management goals, costs and benefits of implementing the suggested,

    and additional, management practices in the highest ranked watersheds;

    4. Provide information on agencies, organizations, and educational institutions that offer

    technical and financial assistance to stakeholders interested in voluntarily implementing

    management practices; and

    5. Describe the next steps in the planning process. 


    At the direction of Governor Asa Hutchinson, the BBRAC was organized to establish an Arkansas led approach to identify and address potential issues of concern in the Buffalo River watershed through the development of a non-regulatory watershed based management plan. The process should be completed by June of 2018. The result of the plan will provide a framework for landowners, communities, and organizations to voluntarily undertake water quality projects in the watershed and improve the ability to solicit and secure funding and assistance from various government and private sources.

    The next Assessment Methodology Stakeholder Workgroup  meeting will be Thursday June 29th from 1:00 to 4:00 in the Commission Room.

     

    Arkansas must assess the waters of the State every two years to determine whether or not they are attaining their designated uses and water quality standards. The Assessment Methodology contains procedures for making these assessments. If waters do not attain either their designated uses or water quality standards, they will be placed on the Impaired Waterbody List (303(d) List).

    Information about the Assessment Methodology, related documents, review schedule, and the sign up for the Assessment Methodology list serve can be found on the ADEQ’s website at: https://www.adeq.state.ar.us/water/planning/integrated/assessment/default.aspx.

     

     BRWA representatives regularly participate in these Stakeholder Workgroup meetings.
